Denise Gibbs of Modesto has viewed firsthand the negative effects of poverty on society resulting in homelessness, unemployment, declining health, and inability to access resources. Many people who are impoverished suffer from mental illness, making it even more difficult for them to seek the help that they need. Based on Census Bureau* records from 2017, twelve percent of Americans are living in poverty. This is why she has developed and suggested her own housing development strategy. Denise Gibbs understands that social workers are educated in dealing with poverty and mental illness.
Mental illness strikes regardless of economic status presenting in the form of mood disorders, substance abuse, and psychosis. Social workers are trained to identify and provide resources for those with mental illness and are in a position to propose policies that will best help those who are suffering.
Social work is necessary to help those who are victims of child neglect and abuse and victims of domestic violence. Denise Gibbs of Modesto has worked with non-profit agencies to identify these victims and serve her community in a way that provides them with assistance and safe places away from their perpetrators.
Denise Gibbs has also spent her career helping those who have been incarcerated for non-violent crimes find employment upon release. She understands that reintegrating can have a positive impact on the economy and remove the negative stigma. She was involved in developing AB 109* in the state of California, public safety legislation that allowed non-violent offenders to be supervised at the county level and enroll in an eighteen-month skills training program. This program includes vocational training and post-secondary education. This motivates these individuals to maintain their employment and has a positive impact on employers.
Denise Gibbs of Modesto intends to continue contributing to the social work field and collaborating with non-profit organizations to serve the underserved communities and provide those in need with valuable, necessary resources.
