Shay Helenkamp, B.S.

Director III of RMD and Support Department

Pittsburgh Corporate Office: (412) 801-9768

Shay Helenkamp has been with the agency for 5 years. She started as a caseworker and quickly moved up the ladder at the agency. Helenkamp attended Slippery Rock University and received her Bachelors of Science with a focus in Social Work. She has worked in social services since graduating in 2008, starting in residential treatment facilities then solely working with agencies that were eager to keep families together.

Currently, Helenkamp supervises two supervisors and two support team members. Her responsibilities include overseeing the supportive departments in order to assist with certification and recertification and assisting in ensuring that our children have a forever home.

The reason she loves working for ASCI is that the agency is truly dedicated to helping families stay together. Helenkamp’s sister was adopted at birth and Helenkamp believes that if there was no family member to take her sister in, she would have been with placed with strangers. Helenkamp’s grandmother has been a caregiver through the agency for years.

“I knew I had to become a part. It has closely touched the lives of my family and I had not even realized it. The values of the agency are near and dear to my heart, and I am thankful to have the opportunity to work, learn and grow here.”
