Candice Girandola

Candice graduated with her bachelor’s degree in Sociology from East Stroudsburg University in 2012.  She began working for a non-profit organization in 2013 as a foster care case manager and reunification worker.  In this position Candice found her passion for working with youth and helping families.  She then went back to school and received her master’s degree in Public Health in 2016.  She found her way back to the non-profit world and worked briefly as a case manager for Family-Mental Health Services.  

Candice missed working with foster children and became a kinship care case manager in 2017.  In 2019, Candice felt she needed a change and accepted a position as a community intervention specialist.  In this role Candice worked closely with police departments on identifying individuals who police have had frequent contact with who were presenting with mental health needs.  Candice would meet with these individuals and attempt to get them connected to the appropriate services.

In December of 2022, Candice will be receiving her second master’s degree in Counseling with a concentration in trauma studies.  She joins IMPACT’s team with a tremendous depth and breadth of knowledge and experience.  Her passion and commitment to ensuring the children/families in our service receive the highest quality service delivery is unmatched.
