Missy Fry, MSW, CSWA

Behavioral Health Social Worker and Clinical Case Manager at Rose Schnitzer Manor

 

Missy joined JFCS in October 2010, originally as a Portland State University (PSU) Social Work intern. She is now the Behavioral Health Social Worker in the JFCS Counseling department. In this role, she provides community-based counseling services through the PEARLS (Program to Encourage Active and Rewarding Lives for Seniors) program, as well as sliding-scale counseling services for people who are uninsured, underinsured, or struggling financially.

In July 2016, Missy took on an additional role as Clinical Case Manager at Rose Schnitzer Manor, where she provides case management, short-term counseling, advocacy, and other support to residents and staff members. She also has experience working with low-income seniors, older adults in the LGBTQI community, patients in hospice, and Somali Bantu refugees at an afterschool homework group. Missy has a Master of Social Work degree from PSU, as well as a Graduate Certificate in Gerontology from PSU’s Institute on Aging.

Becoming a social worker has been a lifelong dream for Missy and she is quite grateful for the invaluable experiences she has gained through her various roles at JFCS. In her personal time, Missy enjoys smiling, eating breakfast (at any time of day), playing Sudoku, hiking with her adorable dog, Abbey, and is in love with her Portland Trail Blazers. Missy is also incredibly in love with elephants and is proud to be a natural redhead.
