Travis Place

Board Member

Mr. Place is a licensed clinical social worker who has worked with children and families at the Department of Children and Families since 2014.  In the agency, Mr. Place has served as an adolescent social worker, juvenile court liaison, and various roles in the field of adoption.  Prior to his work at DCF, Mr. Place was both a foster brother and parent in the state of North Carolina providing love and care to children in need.  He is currently employed as an adoption licensing social worker with DCF out of the Lawrence Office servicing Metrowest and Essex Counties.  In this role Mr. Place works with caring adults to help achieve permanency for children while also ensuring their needs are being met in a way that reduces the gap between service provision and need.  In his work, Mr. Place directly experiences the lack of funding that can lead to the perpetuation of poverty and sub-par life experiences for children and families in Massachusetts.
