At Kids Crossing, our staff are still kids at heart:
Lee Oesterle, MSW, LCSW
Masters Level Social Work and Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Lee has been working in the Child Welfare system since 1978. Before receiving his Masters in Social Work at the University of Denver in 1980, Lee worked in group homes with adolescent boys. From 1980 to 1988, Lee was a Team Leader and then the Clinical Director of Chins Up Youth Care Homes. In 1988 Lee began his private practice and continues that practice on a part-time basis. In 1992, Jan and Larry Faubion asked Lee to be the Executive Director of the child placement agency they were starting – Kids Crossing.
Lee was the Executive Director from 1992 to 2013. In May of 2013, Lee was seriously injured in a bicycle accident in the mountains. After months of rehabilitation at Craig Hospital, Lee returned to work as the Clinical Director of Kids Crossing. This role proved more conducive to his continued healing and recovery. In 2015, Lee was again asked to be the Executive Director.
