JFS Staff Member Sherilyn Haddock Recognized by The Supportive Housing Association of New Jersey

Posted on November 13, 2023

As a Community Support Services (CSS) Case Manager with Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties (JFS), Sherilyn Haddock works one-on-one with adults who have severe and persistent mental illness. She strives to make certain they receive appropriate treatment and advocates with relentless determination to ensure they can live independently. An 18-month JFS staff member, Sherilyn is committed to strengthening the life of each client she works with.

Earlier this year, Sherilyn developed the ‘Cooking with Questions’ class, which helps clients in the CSS program learn safe and easy tips to enhance their healthy cooking skills. In addition to her client caseload, Sherilyn also serves as a member of the agency’s Trauma-Informed Committee, co-leads a staff Peer Support Group, and works as a CSS program trainer.

Sherilyn’s knowledge, dedication and compassion to assisting clients earned her the prestigious Hero of the Year Award by the Supportive Housing Association of New Jersey. The award is presented to professionals who maintain an unwavering commitment to transform the lives of those with special needs and inspire the importance of supportive housing. In addition to this honor, earlier this year, Sherilyn was selected by her JFS peers for the agency’s ‘Outstanding Service Award’.

“Sherilyn consistently goes above and beyond in her JFS work with some of Atlantic County's most vulnerable residents. She proactively identifies potential barriers to client success before they arise and quickly develops an effective plan to address. Her dedication to client advocacy is unsurpassed and clearly has a positive impact on them,” said Andrea Steinberg, JFS Chief Executive Officer.

“Supportive Housing Association (SHA) created the Hero Award so that it might capture the enormous efforts of staff on the front lines. Every year, countless professionals demonstrate heroic levels of creativity, compassion and hours of tireless service in order to keep people safe, healthy and housed,” said Diane Riley, SHA Executive Director. SHA is privileged to recognize the many qualities of dedication found within Sherilyn's work and celebrate her with this award.”
