Dear Sir or Madam:

I am writing in to inquire about a possible opening within your agency for a part-time Social Worker position. I believe that my recent experience in this area would benefit your agency if I were to be considered for such a position. I have experience in working with older adults, and have conducted Geriatric Depression Scales, Folstein Mini-Mental Scales, and also have MDS experience. Most recently I was an Activity Coordinator for Jewish Apartments and Services in West Bloomfield. Due to a tragic fire at our facility, my services could no longer be rendered there. I am seeking a similar position in an independent living facility, and was told about your agency by a family member of one of your former residents.

I also have experience in working with younger and older adults suffering from emotional impairments, substance abuse, and mental health issues. I was coordinator for a transition program for three years, and worked closely with staff from the Family Independence Agency, Community Mental Health, Michigan Rehabilitation Services, and Kalamazoo Regional Educational Services Administration. I have also had a great deal of experience in assisting low-income and indigent adults obtain county health care coverage as well as outreach services.

I was also employed as a Supported Living Supervisor for a non-profit agency. In this capacity I was responsible for individuals with severe mental health issues and developmental disabilities. I worked closely with guardians and families of these individuals as well as with case managers. I supervised direct care staff, and was responsible for consumer living sites. I also ensured that person-centered-plans and medication protocols were followed.

I appreciate your taking the time to review my resume. I am available for an interview at your convenience. I can be reached at the above telephone number and can provide you with letters of reference upon request.

Sincerely,
Maureen Gallagher
