Meet Our Team
Support Coordinator – Cheryl Chen
I am a service-focussed social professional with a strong commitment to serving the needs of disadvantaged, marginalised and vulnerable communities. My professional background and experiences spans over 13 years in the welfare sector. I have held roles both in a support worker and management capacity, ranging from state government to both large and smaller not-for-profits. A considerable amount of my working history has focussed largely on housing, homelessness and mental health, however I have also had a lot of exposure working with clients from various cohorts and different backgrounds. My management experience has also been varied, with proven experience leading teams in mainstream crisis services, social housing, case management and administration.
I believe my career speaks for itself in reflecting my dedication to occupations of service. My strong work ethic, values and commitment to social justice and equal rights have always guided every role I’ve taken on, and will continue to now as a Support Coordinator and Recovery Coach. I strive to always use a strengths-based, person-centred approach with all my clients to achieve their goals. I’m a big believer in open communication and if I had to describe myself in three words they would be; honest, innovative and reliable.
When I’m not working, you’ll probably find me spending time with my family, trying out new restaurants and cafes or testing out a new recipe – I love cooking and am a hobby cake decorator!
