PRLog - June 30, 2011 - A novel based solidly on true events, The Guardian Angel Level is the shocking story of front-line workers in today’s social work/non-profit field, who face becoming casualties themselves as they seek to help others.
The Guardian Angel Level
“Of all the talk about the fate of the homeless, addicted, and the working poor,” author Chuck Michael Ostan says, “there is little mention about the legions of front-line workers who burn out, are sold out, or walk away because of lack of support and understanding from the powers that be. Most of these are so poorly paid and poorly treated that they are inches away from homelessness themselves.”
As a caseworker in an often-hypocritical environment, Ostan witnessed apocalyptic and life-changing events among clients, staff, and the system as a whole. In The Guardian Angel Level, Ostan shares a personal and detailed chronicle of a spiritual journey and evolution to Christian maturity. “Being a Christian, I wrote this book to relay the message that is learned during the spiritual, mental, and emotional evolution that comes from working in frontline nonprofit and social work.”
“Unfortunately, to relate these experiences accurately,”
The Guardian Angel Level offers a clear and honest “inside” view of a world that is gritty, harrowing, and ultimately uplifting. “This book,” Ostan says, “is not called The Guardian Angel Level because those who remain are literally angels, but because those who remain without agenda are there only for the purpose of helping. They are lights in the darkness and guides based on the gravity of their witness and experience. In earthly terms, they are Guardian Angels.”
