Southmountain agency grows again to establish better advocacy in the Toe River area

We are so pleased that Kayla Norville has recently joined our agency family in July as the Carolina Girl that has risen to shine.  Born and raised in Mount Airy, “Mayberry”, she is the first in her biological family to complete an undergraduate college degree.  It was during her Lenoir-Rhyne University internship experience with Catawba DSS that awakened and first fueled her compassion toward the need to intervene against perpetrators and advocate for victims.  Having the heart of a Social Worker and a mindset to leapfrog the obstacles that drain resources in the public sector, she is now poised and excited to begin providing undivided attention to families spiraling from abuse or neglect.  A newly created position in the Fall of 2017, Kayla’s positive attitude and light-hearted disposition is a natural fit with the Family Advocate role to serve.  We welcome her and have high confidence that she will both bring and sustain the hope and resources that families and folks in the Toe River area need during traumatic life events.
