“I hope I can help people see through the stereotypes of people experiencing homelessness and realize that the people we serve are just people who are in need of a little help.”

  1. Because I believe that everyone deserves a safe place to sleep at night, a helping hand, and a place to call home, I help communicate that The Road Home provides emergency shelter, services such as case managers to help people overcome the things causing their episode of homelessness, and programs to ultimately help people move home.
  2. I love to hear people’s stories.  Everyone who is in need of emergency shelter has a compelling story, and seeing people work hard and move back home – makes the perfect ending to their story of experiencing homelessness.
  3. I started at The Road Home as a volunteer and loved seeing how the team all works together to help people. It was such an honor to become a part of that team, and know that everything we do is helping real people in need.
  4. I hope I am able to help people – help raise funds to ensure that there are programs and services here to help people overcome homelessness.  I also hope I can tell the story of the work The Road Home team does and why it is vital in our community.  Lastly, I hope I can help people see through the sterotypes of people experiencing homelessness – and realize that the people we serve are just people who are in need of a little help.

“I love working with such unique clients and learning how resilient people can be. Hearing the hardships that people go through, and that they still have the strength to want a better life for themselves and their kids is inspiring.”

  1. Working with people who recently just got into housing and out of shelter. I help them find resources and encourage them to find employment so they can become sustainable once our program is over.  (Sorry that was 2 sentences!)
  2. I love working with such unique clients and learning how resilient people can be. Hearing the hardships that people go through, and that they still have the strength to want a better life for themselves and their kids is inspiring. I also love my coworkers and my team. We help each other on the bad days, and also celebrate each others small victories that we all have within this job. 
  3. Growing up in SLC, I always heard of The Road Home, and even volunteered here sometimes in high school. I always knew I wanted to work somewhere that made a difference in the community, and I think The Road Home does such important work.
  4. The biggest way I feel like I make a difference is I feel like I am an advocate for my clients. Especially, when I feel like my clients haven’t had someone on their side in a while, or even ever. I want every one of my clients to succeed after assistance, and I hope I give them the tools to do so.
