Family Advocate in Norristown:
"Pros and cons."
As some one in my postion there are many rewards with the job with the millions of children that are helped to give them a chance to recieve the best education posible. Unfortunately the many hours of paper work and keeping up with grant demands, funders, and satisfying stake holders in the community served is not an easy task to handle.

Family Advocate in Dallas:
"You Should Research Before You Begin Working."
Do some investigation, and homework, on what you want to do before you start. Do not invest a lot of money in living situations before you finish school on the level you desire. It is a lot harder to move backwards than forwards.
