Barrier Free Living Apartments is home to 70 individuals and 50 single-parent households with children who have survived chronic homelessness, disability, and trauma. My role here is as a Social Worker, providing support and advocacy. I collaborate with a team of social workers, nursing, child care providers, and occupational therapists in ensuring the safety and comfort of the tenants in the program.

My joy and goal in becoming a social worker is to address an individual's needs while providing a positive outlook on life no matter what their situation seems to be at the moment. I am very glad to be part of an interdisciplinary team whose mission is to support tenants who've experienced and overcome so much. I have learned so much from my colleagues and tenants. It is my pleasure to provide services to empower and support my work family, tenants and staff.
