Job openings for social workers at 18 percent
Robin L. Flanigan;
12:01 a.m. EST February 24, 2014
State says projected growth driven by an increased demand for health care and social services.

Story Highlights
Kevin Coffey works at Strong Behavioral Health in Rochester and sees about 30 patients a weeks.
Median annual wage of social workers in 2012 was more than $47,000, according to the state.
Kevin: “My priest recently said counselors are like prophets. They help them make their story better about their life.”

Kevin Coffey began by helping out family, like when he offered his mother support after his adopted father drank too much. Then friends started coming to him for advice during arguments and bad breakups.

Now he’s a mental health social worker and clinical coordinator for ambulatory services at Strong Behavioral Health in Rochester.

“*** and ***

That demand, coupled with fewer resources, makes it a challenge “to figure out a way to get people in and out of here in a way that makes reasonable sense for them and gets them help,” said Coffey, 56, who has a bachelor’s degree in history and religious studies from Manhattan College, a master’s degree in social work from Rhode Island College, and a Ph.D. in counseling and human development from the University of Rochester’s Warner School of Education. He lives in Rochester.
