Nowak joins team at CSSUP

MARQUETTE — Catholic Social Services of the U.P. is introducing a new member to its Child Welfare team, Alyssa Nowak.

Nowak started with CSSUP on June 16 as a foster care case manager. She graduated from Northern Michigan University in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology.

Following graduation, Alyssa stayed in the Marquette area to work with youth in substance abuse rehabilitation at Great Lakes Recovery Center, eventually moving into their L.U.N.A. Trauma Assessment program for children and adolescents.

Alyssa later moved to the Gaylord area of northern Lower Michigan, starting her career in child welfare in February of 2019.

“Soon after, she returned to the U.P. to continue her career with CSSUP and we’re excited to have her on our team,” officials said in the announcement. With offices in Marquette, Escanaba and Iron Mountain, CSSUP is a nonprofit agency offering foster care and adoption services, as well as behavioral health and substance abuse counseling to every county in the Upper Peninsula.
