Our Team

Kim Smith - our Caseworker

I joined JRS in January 2012 and since then I have worked across a number of projects including Unaccompanied Minors, the Shelter Project for single men, and most recently at our Arrupe Place Community Centre.

My background has been in Child and Adolescent Mental Health and International Child Protection.

I have become a mother three times over since I started to work at JRS, and the strength and resilience of the families we work with constantly inspires me.  Our clients are some of the most vulnerable people in our community, yet they constantly overcome such significant and complex challenges. 

I continue to work with JRS because we are an organisation that always works to fill the gaps in existing service provision, and over the years I have seen how our focus on accompaniment can make such a significant difference in people’s lives.  

I’m incredibly grateful to work with such an amazing and dedicated group of people.
