Our team members best describe the Gulf Coast JFCS team experience:

Mary Torres, MSW, RYT200

“I am so honored to be a part of Gulf Coast and to be able to do the work we are doing. I wake up very grateful and happy each day knowing that I am fortunate enough to be sharing my gifts and talents with the world and to be part of such a wonderful community of like-minded people.”

Rena Davis, LHMC

“The families I have worked with during my time with the Family Reunification Team have taught me we all want to be heard and noticed. The way in which we want that is different for each of us. Some are bold and boisterous, others are reserved. If we make the effort to get to know and respect each other’s individual style for navigating the world, we will be rewarded with a lifetime of meaningful relationships.”
