As I read the case study of Almeada and baby Anne, I was inspired by her case manager Barbra LaRosa, she provided social care and became the “bridge” between Almeade and the systems. One function of bridging is to narrow the gap between the services being offered and the needs of the individuals who are receiving those services. (Woodside, M. R. (2015). An Introduction to the Human Services, 8th Edition) Ms. LaRosa applied social care to Almeada while she was pregnant with baby Anne, she recognized Almeada's problems in living and since she worked at the school, and Almeada had not returned from summer break, she reached out to her to see what was going on and learn more about her life.

Kania Rimu is a goal-setter but more importantly, a go-getter. I met Kania in 2012 while she was in the 9th grade and, she was a very shy and unassuming young lady, very much someone who would blend into the background. In 2015, she is not that girl. As quickly as 2013 rolled in, Kania made a name for herself, by pushing for the chance to take two advanced math classes at the same time. Although this may seem like an easy feat, it is an abnormality at Forest Hills High School. She pitched her goals and expectations to the administration and opted to take 8 classes in her sophomore year and she still achieved significantly strong grades. She has kept moving educationally forward each year, taking various advanced placement and honors courses
