Today under brilliant blue skies and sparkling snowy peaks, we had the honour of joining Brenda Hokianga and her whanau at the Powhiri to welcome her to Child, Youth & Family as a Social Worker.
Brenda has been with Connecting Communities Wairarapa as the Strengthening Families Coordinator for some 6 years. During that time Brenda completed her Social Work degree through Whare Wananga O Aotearoa.
Earlier this year C Y & F seconded Brenda for a period of 5 months during which they discovered the toanga she is and offered her a permanent position.
We are happy to cement our strong ties with CY & F and know Brenda will be our strongest advocate for Strengthening Families.
