Determination Defeats Dysfunction
After more than a decade of helping troubled families, Angel Tatum continues to love her work, despite the long hours and sometimes heart-breaking circumstances.
“I know what I do is impactful,” said Angel, who is currently a family specialist at Thornwell in Camden County, a nonprofit organization providing residential, family and educational support programs, as well as a foster care. Before transitioning to that position less than a year ago, she was the director of foster care at Morningstar Family and Children Services in Brunswick. “I may be tired, but when I interact with families and children, it gives me energy. Advocacy is very important for the families we work with for them to be restored.”
