“Our team commits to ‘teaching a man to fish;’ and with each step toward independence, we see our clients’ confidence and self-esteem return and increase. I enjoy watching our case managers work tirelessly to guide them and coach them on job readiness, budgeting, cooking, hygiene habits and so much more.”
