Margaret (age 38), identifies as a Mexican American homemaker, is seeking services
from a local service agency. Margaret tells the caseworker that she feels overwhelmed with her
usual responsibilities with the additional pressures of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Additionally, she feels depressed, doesn't sleep well or eat much, and is irritable much of the
time. She has eliminated most of her social interactions and the only outside activity she feels
comfortable doing is attending Sunday Mass with her family. Recently, Margaret’s father (77) a
retired U.S. Navy Lieutenant, had a fall, and is no longer able to live alone. Margaret helped him
move into a local assisted living, but is struggling to ensure his emotional needs are met. She was
able to sign him up for food stamps to assist with the cost of food. Margaret lives with her family
in Yuma, AZ (for history of Yuma https://www.yumaaz.gov/about-yuma for census information
Her partner Jenna (age 42) also identifies as Mexican American, is an architect who
works long hours and often unwinds after work by enjoying a few drinks. Margaret
communicates that Jenna’s drinking upsets her because her father was an alcoholic and she is
concerned about the few times Jenna has picked up the kids after she had a few drinks. Jenna is
passionate about her architecture work and was awarded the Yuma Architect of the year in 2019.
Due to COVID-19 Jenna moved her architecture practice to her home and now all four family
members are under the same roof for the bulk of the time together. In talking with the case
worker, Jenna reports the line between family and work has been blurred due to COVID-19, her
drinking has increased after work to destress. She reports her work load has increased since
working from home and she has no energy left to engage with her children or partner at the end
of the day. She says that when she tries to cut back drinking during special events or during Lent,
she finds that she is irritable and craves alcohol. She believes that if she wanted to, she could
probably cut back but feels alcohol helps her relax. Jenna reports she is concerned about Lisa’s
inability to focus and her struggling grades.
They live with their 2 children Lisa (age 15) who is capable of caring for herself and
helping around the house, but prefers to hang out with her friends and be involved in sports and
other extracurricular activities; and their youngest son, David (age 9), who has Down's
Syndrome and needs assistance in self-care and day-to-day activities.
Lisa (15) is very socially active in extracurricular and athletic events. In school
she fidgets and has a hard time sitting still. She also struggles with time management and tends
to be disorganized. She chronically misplaces everyday objects like her backpack, mask and cell
phone. She will often be late to volleyball practice and her friends comment on how forgetful she
is. Although she wants her school work to be perfect, she is prone to making careless mistakes.
The struggle for perfection makes starting a new assignment feel very stressful, leading her to
procrastinate starting in the first place. As a consequence, she recently failed a big test, which
has led to her acute fear of failing 10th grade, and not being eligible to play volleyball. She
recently made the varsity volleyball team as a 10th grader.
David (9) is thriving in his current school environment. He has great support in his
special education classroom and is mainstreamed for several classes. Margaret and Jenna keep a
consistent schedule for him throughout his entire day that sets him up for success.
The case worker receives a call yesterday from Margaret that Jenna was pulled over for
driving under the influence two blocks from their house. Jenna was on her way home with the
kids. Jenna was arrested and Margaret was called to pick up the kids. As of today, Jenna is
currently in jail and Margaret came home to a card on the door from child protective services.
Jenna is facing an aggravated DUI because of her blood alcohol level and because both children
were in the car.
