Human Support Services (HSS) is pleased to announce the promotion of Josephine “Josie” Juelfs from a part time to a full time direct care worker; she will be employed at the Hecker group homes.  She resides in Wartburg and enjoys reading and spending time with her nephews; she holds a BA degree from McKendree University in religious studies.  Josie will teach developmentally delayed clients daily living skills to help them live as independently as possible in the community.  In this role, she will teach/assist with daily living skills, pass medications, and provide social skills training.  She will be supervised by Site Manager Margie Baum.  HSS provides 24-hour supervision to nearly 40 developmentally delayed or mentally ill clients.

The mission of HSS is to provide high quality, comprehensive services to Monroe County residents with mental health or substance abuse needs, or developmental disabilities.  HSS is a private, non-profit community resource founded in 1973, providing confidential COA-accredited services.  Thanks to the United Way of Greater St. Louis and the local Monroe County Community Mental Health Funding Board (H.B. 708), HSS can set fees that are affordable.  For further information, call 618-939-4444, visit or become a friend on Facebook.
