It isn’t always easy to share your story with another new face. As your Prevention Resource Coordinator, I have a degree in Social Work, and a background in housing assistance and homelessness prevention, which I believe will aid us in building a strong, trusting partnership. Over the coming days and weeks, I look forward to meeting you individually to better understand your unique needs and circumstances. Together, we will develop a personalized plan to address your challenges, while also celebrating your strengths and successes.

Thank you for the privilege of being a part of your journey. I am here to listen, support, and empower you, and I genuinely believe that positive changes lie ahead."
