I have been working with Cathy since April as her Case Manager. In that time, Cathy has shown herself to be very active towards obtaining resources. Cathy is a person with a strong drive and positive attitude as well as a great sense of humor. Cathy always talks about her children and the goals she has are heavily influenced by her love and desire to provide a good life for each of them. Cathy earnestly wants to obtain her GED, find a job, find permanent housing, and start achieving the goals she has set out for herself. It would be great to see her receive this help.
