Three years later he was promoted to the Department of Human Services Commissioner’s Office, Bureau of Client Services where he followed-up on unusual incidents in the facilities housing those who were mentally ill and developmentally disabled. He also conducted quality assurance surveys in an effort to improve services in the state’s institutions.
Since 1990 Mr. Hock has been employed by the NJ Division of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. He has edited the popular Monthly Communicator newsletter, operated the Equipment Distribution Program, approved expenditures and managed the budget.
Consequently, for 39 years he has served as an advocate for consumers of the Department of Human Services.
He received his BA Social Work in 1976 at Antioch College, Yellow Springs, Ohio. He studied abroad in Brazil in 1974 while learning conversational Portuguese.
