DAYTON —Carmela Daniels has worked for the Department of Veteran Affairs as a clinical social worker since 2009 to bring resources to veterans and their families, work that has made an impact on many in the Dayton area.
Daniels is a Dayton native who works to provide resources for care givers of veterans as well as doing community service events through Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority. She also has a small business providing mentorship and assistance with licensure for potential and current social workers.
“I’m very humbled to be nominated because that’s not how I see myself and I think I’m just operating in my every day daily form, but it is service,” Daniels said. “I thank God that somebody sees me this way even if many days I don’t.”
Daniels works in the Caregiver Support program through the VA. It is designed to assist families that take care of veterans, providing education and training, in-home care, and other avenues of support so that they know how best to care for the veteran. They provide finance assistance, mental health services, access to vaccines, and medical assistance including covering medical expenses and medications.
“The goal is to take care of the needs of the caregivers so that they can take care of the veterans,” Daniels said.
Daniels was nominated as a Dayton Daily News Community Gem by her longtime friend and sorority sister Marietta Wade. “Carmela has a big heart. She is so selfless in everything that she does, and she considers everyone else before she even remotely thinks about herself,” Wade said. “Everything she does to uplift the community in addition to the work she does with our veterans should be commended and recognized. If it’s delivering food baskets to the less fortunate or planning outreach events for the veterans, Dr. Daniels never refuses an opportunity to serve others.”
