Sateash Hime is passionate, innovative and someone who thinks big. She used to be a DHS case worker in the foster adoption program. But Sateash was dissatisfied with how little she was able to do working within DHS, especially with children and families living with Reactive Attachment Disorder. Working in a large organization with caseloads of up to 25 families, all with different needs, and 60 days to complete each case, she knew that families needed more than a bandaid solution. Sateash also noticed patterns with RAD families and knew they needed help. She is now the Pathways Partner Coordinator at an organization called Joint Initiatives. This organization helps families access the support and resources they need by providing individualized support. It all starts with the ISST (Individual Services Support Team); a position and team that was created specifically for Sateash. She describes her job as "giving people the grace and that place to not be OK". And then asking, "How can I help"? No judgement, real help.
