As a life-long resident of Milwaukee I have made a commitment to improve the lives of those in my community. Quality of care is very important when providing services for children and young adults. The future lies with them so having a solid team of professionals to help as they plan their future is essential. I divide my time between working with the kids and working with our team to ensure they are the best they can be.
As a young child I always knew that I wanted to help people. Becoming a Crisis Stabilizer has been so rewarding. Every day is completely different. You can guarantee that there will be several unexpected challenges for you to deal with. You get to make a real difference in the life of the young children, providing them with some of the tools for success. The children are our future. By helping the kids in tough situations get onto the path of success, you can really make a difference.
I am an outgoing individual who enjoys learning new things and being active in the community. I also have great communication skills and always remain consistent. I am self motivated and determined. I enjoy working with children especially in the area of development. I have earned my degree in Psychology from Kaplan University. My desire is to see children and families succeed and therefore, my goal is to advocate for each client(s) to help them meet their goals.
I’m a believer of positive change, and my beliefs are the reason why I advocate and provide positive role modeling skills, build support and gain the trust of the youth that I come in contact with. As a crisis stabilizer I provide and share ideas on ways to better deal with crisis situations without added frustration.
I am committed to working with Milwaukee’s youth and families and have been a crisis stabilizer and mentor for several years.
I have a passion for working with youth, so it is my desire to see them overcome hardship and succeed in the future. I believe in empowering youth to live out their purpose by cultivating their gifts and talents within.
“We as leaders are in control of our tomorrows. Our future is determined by the work we put in yesterday.” I am determined to invest into our youth to show them absolutely every avenue there is to be better then they were yesterday, growth is challenging but growth is good.
I have the ability to work with all individuals regardless of race, religion, or soci-economic status. I have been working with children all of my professional career and understand that you sometimes have to meet them where they are at. I have a non-biased and judgement free attitude. My philosophy is life is full of choices so choose wisely. I will be happy to service your family as needed.
I have worked with children and youth in several different capacities throughout my career. My experience has allowed me to form positive, meaningful, and impactful relationships with many youth and families. I have always been passionate about working with children and youth and helping to guide them in the right direction. It is my goal to make a difference in the lives of the families I work with.
I am a family oriented mother whom has raised two beautiful successful young ladies that understands and respects the values of family morals. I strongly believe in our children and families future. I love sharing my experiences, strengths and beliefs with the youth of today to ensure a better tomorrow.
My name is John Sumlin, as a youth growing up in the City of Milwaukee and as the oldest of five children, I looked outside of my family for a “mentor” figure. I recognized the value in that type of a relationship and therefore, sought out a career where I could provide that type of support to our youth.
I am committed to making a difference with youth and their families. I am currently working as a crisis stabilizer and mentor.
