Brock Neely

Program Facilitator

Brock’s life in the helping field began in 2006, when he enlisted to serve our country in the Army. He served 5 years and was honorably discharged. Like many soldiers returning home, he faced challenges during the first 4 years following his discharge from the armed forces. In 2015, he turned things around and begin the next phase of service to our community. Since then, he has been in school seeking a degree in social work. He is near the end of his bachelor’s degree at East Central University and he plans on attending the University of Oklahoma to obtain a Master’s Degree in Social Work. He plans to become a licensed clinical social worker and to provide treatment for those afflicted by mental illness and substance abuse.

His experience in the military and growing up in a family where addiction was present has enabled him to practice assertive communication with the children while maintaining an appropriate amount of empathy. Brock demonstrates excellent empathy skills and commands firm respect with the children and families served at PFS.
