Brianne

As a case manager, I work with adults who are experiencing homelessness, or are at risk of homelessness. I provide support, counseling, and guidance for obtaining resources to improve quality of life. I connect people to resources such as job training, substance abuse treatment, and physical and mental health care. My goal is to provide the support and resources for people to be able to meet their goals, and to obtain adequate housing and income.

My biggest joy is seeing people feel that they have moved beyond merely surviving, and are now thriving.

I've observed that believing people, allowing people be the expert in their own lives, and providing encouragement aids clients in seeing their own self worth and believing more in their abilities to accomplish great things.
