My job title is Prevention Coordinator. My work involves assisting households in preventing them from becoming homeless with financial support. I also assist households who are currently homeless to secure housing. I also provide extensive case managment and supportive services.
What I like about my job is helping all households with families and individuals to reach their goals on stabilizing their housing and personal goals.
I have been working at this agency for 16 years. I found that you can't take anything for face value. I enjoy seeing results in the assistance that I administer and I am also challenged with difficult cases. I meet my clients where they are at and know that eveyone has a path. If I can offer any assistance with my knowledge and expertise and wisdom and if that touches their lives in a positive way then I know I have met my goal.

My dream is to become a business manager. I need a laptop to take online classes towards my BA

Online classes will open up management positions for me at work, but right now I live paycheck to paycheck & can't afford a computer to take them on. More
