Destiny's Work: Bemidji Social Worker Nominated for State Care Provider Award
More than 20,000 people are eligible for the annual Cares Awards from the Association of Residential Resources of Minnesota, and less than 100 are nominated.
This year, one of those nominated works right here in Bemidji.
On Friday, ARRM, the statewide association representing care providers through legislative advocacy and public awareness, presented Destiny Krogseng a nomination certificate. Krogseng is a licensed social worker from Bemidji and works at Lutheran Social Services Minnesota.
During a ceremony at First Lutheran Church in Bemidji, Drew Henry, ARRM director of member communication, presented the certificate to Krogseng and noted the significance of the work she does.
"Destiny's work is helping to bridge one of the largest inclusion gaps for Minnesotans with disabilities: gaining mainstream employment," said Joyce Hagen, Senior Director of Personal Support Services at LSS. "She not only works with people to develop their skills, but ensures their co-workers and broader community have the tools and resources to be part of their support network and ultimate success."
