Hello, my name is Mrs. Ford and I am the School Social Worker/Home School Visitor for Richland School District. I grew up in Blair County, PA and attended Frostburg State University in Frostburg, MD. I received my bachelor's degree in Justice Studies and Political Science. Upon graduation from college, I began my career within the child welfare system. I decided to further my education and enrolled in graduate school at The University of Pittsburgh. I received my Master's of Social Work, MSW. I became a Licensed Social Worker, LSW in 2004. I re-enrolled at The University of Pittsburgh in 2009 and obtained my Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) Home and School Visitor Certification. Also, during that time, I received my clinical license in social work, LCSW.
With these unprecedented times in education, I am here to assist families with community agencies and available resources. I also serve as the district's Homeless Liaison. Please feel free to call or email me with any questions or concerns. Thank you very much.
