Caitlin (Caity) Goerke
Caity joined PSS, as Advocate-Lawyer, at the end of January 2019. She collaborates on our provincial GRG/Kinship Care Support Line with Christina Campbell (Advocate – Social Work). Her work involves assisting all kinship care providers, including grandparents who are raising their grandchildren full time, in finding solutions to their day to day issues. These can include: accessing child welfare and benefit programs, navigating the legal process for getting custody and guardianship, understanding the Extended Family Program; finding available services and resources and much more. Caity is a member in good standing with the Law Society of BC.
“Having just become a lawyer, I am thrilled to be starting my career at PSS – an organization that does incredibly important work for children, families and communities. I have a background in victims services and have worked providing legal services in the areas of Indigenous, family and poverty law. I hope that these experiences will help me to provide high-quality services to kinship caregivers as I support them in navigating the complex systems they face. When I am not working, I love spending time outdoors with my chocolate lab, Finola.”
