Subject: Application for the position of a Family Advocate
Dear Ms. Everett,
Providing support and facilitating the community-affiliated resources to the low-income families and their children require a decent liaising skill. I have acquired this skill with years of dedicated service for the benefit of the people. I would like to use my abilities in adding to Fast Help-Line Center reputation by presenting my candidature for a Family Advocate position.
I have the compassion to work for the people who neither have the means nor the knowledge to obtain basic rights. I have acted as an advocate for a countless number of families in the past ten years and provided them access to education, medical facilities, and solving disputes before they reach to the court. This way, I have saved valuable time of the court, and the parties involved.
I have overseen and managed development programs for individuals and group. I have assisted child welfare officer in monitoring and resolving cases. I have also developed and executed support program for older children. I have even conducted lectures and seminars whereby I have taught children in how to deal with behavioral issues.
I am good in organizing and managing statistical reports. I have even handled the paperworks for starting country assistance programs. My efforts in paying extreme attention towards the safety of children have so far yielded positive results, and it will so in the future. My skills have helped many families in overcoming crisis and giving a new turn to their lives.
I am eager to meet you to discuss my experience and skills that would be useful for your organization. You can reach me at 802-440-4425 anytime you prefer.
