I am the Manager of Supportive Housing in the Community Connections department. I started at the agency as an intern and will be here 9 years next month!
FCA is integral because of its ability to address the needs of the entire community. It’s rare to find a non-profit that can provide services for pregnant mothers and seniors under the same roof. FCA plays a fundamental role in the community and provides its clients with the opportunity to not only address their needs, but to thrive. Supporting the community with the range of services offered by FCA truly does change lives for the better, and I feel so lucky to be apart of it.
As a manager at FCA, I have the opportunity to supervise hard-working staff who assist previously homeless individuals and families in finding and sustaining housing. Assisting an individual at their lowest point and actually seeing growth and change is the most rewarding part of this position and without my staff, it wouldn’t happen. Our case managers are assisting clients in meeting a basic need and without that need met, other challenges are much more difficult to overcome. The previously homeless individuals we work with share a special bond with their case managers, and often don’t have many other supports due to decisions they made in the past. I am most proud of the diligent and dedicated staff I get the honor of supervising every day.
