Throughout her career, Tara Johnson has shared her strong passion for working with the community by serving the community in a variety of entities, and now looks forward to applying that passion to assist Connections IRIS participants.
Her most recent work experience was helping inmates who had been released to a halfway house setting before their probation/discharge. This program allows inmates to start building and preparing themselves for living in the community through securing employment, and learning about budgeting and planning.
Tara also served children and their families in the Child Protective and Head Start realms, empowering families to advocate for their loved ones. She has also helped special-needs adults living in a group home setting. In this role, Tara encouraged family communication and correspondence, which she feels is essential in anyone’s life.
She graduated from Concordia University with a bachelor’s degree in social work and a minor in social sciences. Tara discovered when she was a Brownie in the Girl Scouts that she wanted to devote her career to the social service field. Now she’s excited to share her knowledge and commitment to helping others while serving as an IRIS consultant with Connections.
