Katherine Ziegler Heinz Hired as Woodbourne Center’s Foster Parent Social Worker

Woodbourne Center welcomes Katherine Ziegler Heinz as the Foster Parent Social Worker for the nonprofit’s treatment foster care program. Heinz’s efforts will focus on the recruitment of new foster families, as well as working with Woodbourne’s current foster parents.

“I have enjoyed meeting the many committed individuals here at Woodbourne,” says Heinz. “I have been impressed that people here are so caring and really like the mindset of the program. It is wonderful to see a program truly trying to prepare kids to return to their life and make good decisions.”

Prior to her time at Woodbourne, Heinz ran an in-home daycare, which she began after her second child was born. Heinz also worked with youth through volunteering with Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts and her son’s soccer team. Before that, she served at Voices for Children, Howard County’s Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program, where Heinz trained volunteers to be advocates for children in the court system. Heinz also has experience at Harford County Department of Social Services, as she previously worked in both the foster care and family preservation departments.

“Katherine brings a wealth of experience in getting people involved in helping Maryland’s children,” says Chaya B. Caine, Clinical Director of Treatment Foster Care at Woodbourne Center. “Her passion around identifying needs and finding ways to fill them is inspiring. She is creative, patient, organized and ready to make things happen!”

Heinz grew up in Harford County and has resided in Perry Hall for almost fifteen years. “My family is in the area, which is very important to me,” she says.

Woodbourne Center provides a wide range of psychiatric services for youth with behavioral and emotional issues. The continuum of care includes treatment foster care for boys and girls, from birth-age 21, psychiatric residential treatment for male youth, ages 12-18, and a specialized school. Woodbourne Center, a Nexus Family Member, believes that changing one life changes everything.
