Meet the Social Development Commission (SDC)’s Youth & Family Services Case Manager Jerreld Sellers:
How long have you worked at SDC?
What do you do at SDC?
Tell us how it helps in the war against poverty.
In my position as a case manager, I am a change agent in the war against poverty. It is in my position that I go beyond helping participants address their needs. I give them hope. Hope is an earnest, intense expectation and it takes hope to fight this war against poverty.
What motivates you? Why do you do this work?
What motivates me is being able to make a difference. I do this work because I can fulfill my calling to serve others.
Describe a time when you felt like your work at SDC made a difference in someone’s life.
There was a time when I had to interact with a client working with the lead removal team. I was trusted to go assist and make contact with one of the tenants whose home had been burglarized at the time of repairs. Many of the essentials had been stolen. In making contact, I was able to offer further assistance and services on behalf of SDC.
Tell us something people don’t know about you.
I am a licensed and ordained reverend and serve as interim pastor at a local church here in Milwaukee.
