Sara Benes ’16 has started a new position as Family Support Worker at Jenda Family Services.
“Most of what I do at Jenda is working with families and individuals in their homes and in the community, rather than working from an office. Most clients of Jenda are parents trying to regain guardianship of their children, or individuals on parole are required to work with someone like me to achieve more independence and become productive members of society. I also do a little work with foster parents, but my priority is mainly helping bio parents and families reach their goals to live healthier and happier lives.”
She has her Bachelor’s degrees in Psychology and Global Studies from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, and is currently working on a Master’s degree in Clinical Counseling through Divine Mercy University. She currently lives in Lincoln.
