KUDOS: Zara Carroll

DHS Director Marc Cherna recently received a letter praising Zara Carroll, caseworker for the Office of Children, Youth and Families (CYF). The letter, sent by the former foster parents of an infant, stated that the parents “have always had faith in our systems but Zara definitely deepened it.”

The letter continued by commending Zara for her “diligent preparations for court,” “wise judgments concerning the baby’s safety and well-being,” and “a compassion which will not only hold her in good stead but [the] Department as well, and more importantly the people you serve.”

The parents concluded, “[Zara] is the perfect example of what it means to be a civil servant. You can feel very satisfied if the rest of your staff is as hard working and motivated toward protecting the vulnerable children of Allegheny County."
