Employee Spotlight: Kate Leidl
Meet Kate Liedl! She joined Compass as a Children's Enrichment Specialist in 2019 where she offered welcoming support to children and parents who were accessing our Family Resource Center's drop-in childcare services. Kate was a friendly and familiar face for parents who would drop off their children for free onsite childcare while they were receiving case management and therapy services at 37 Grove.
When shelter-in-place began, Compass was no longer able to offer drop-in childcare services but Kate quickly adapted to provide incredible support to new Compass initiatives created to meet the growing needs of families impacted by the crisis. Kate is now a Case Manager for Compass' Family Resource Center, offering individualized support and resources to our families.
Since then, Kate has drafted our first ever Drop-In Childcare Handbook, connected many families to childcare services during the crisis, such as Learning Hubs, First5 services and so much more. Kate's attention to detail, balance of compassion, professionalism, and commitment to our client families is tremendous and we are grateful to have her on our Family Resources Center team!
Thank you so much, Kate!
