Kyle Lamson-Safe Families Case Manager

Kyle Lamson serves as the Safe Families for Children Case Manager at Hearts With A Mission.

Why do you feel called to serve at H.W.A.M.?
My desire to work at HWAM stems back to before the walls were even put up. Because I’ve had the privilege of the Founder being my dad, I was able to see firsthand how the difficulties in getting this place going could turn into such an impacting establishment for the homeless youth in Jackson County. I believe that God has placed HWAM in not only my dad’s heart, but mine as well. Through serving at HWAM, I’m able to give back to a community that has been so great to me over the years.

What is your role at the H.W.A.M.?
I am a Case Manager at HWAM for the Safe Families for Children program. I get the opportunity to work with current kids at the shelter, kids that have gone through the shelter and exited (Aftercare) and also new referrals from outside our agency. I mainly work with kids who are too old for shelter services in the 18-24 range.

What are your favorite things about working at H.W.A.M.?
Every day here at HWAM is a new experience. Whether it be new kids coming in, involvement in various activities throughout the community, or visitors volunteering their time to hang out, a refreshing and exciting atmosphere is apparent. On top of working with great kids, the staff here at HWAM is unlike any other. An almost family-like dynamic exists between staff which makes working at HWAM a breeze. Getting to work with a group of such caring, enthusiastic individuals makes any day at HWAM a good one.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Apart from growing mustaches, my hobbies primarily consist of anything where I can be active. I enjoy working out, playing with my dog, wake-boarding, snowboarding, hunting, and supporting the Bay Area sports teams. Hanging with family and friends is ok too I guess.

What is one funny thing about yourself?
If I could be any other staff, it would have to be Tyler Dean. The man knows how to move. “And……….boom goes the dynamite!”
