JOIN : words from Mandy

What JOIN does:

JOIN operates with the belief that it is the homeless person him or herself who must be the agent of change, not the social worker or agency.  JOIN leverages the strengths, talents, and dreams of the people we work with to help them break the cycle of homelessness and return to permanent housing.  This means listening to people and walking beside them as they navigate a return to safe, stable, and sustainable housing.

Words from Mandy after celebrating her another year of sobriety with her JOIN Retention Worker, Colleen:

“I’m proud of my story because everything that I’ve been through has made me who I am today. I’m happy that my stress right now is coming from my Business Communication class, and that I have things to look forward to like getting married next month and earning my degree! I was pretty much homeless for twenty years, after I started using hard drugs at age 12. I didn’t have any self-respect or pride back then; everything was unconscious decision making to feed my addiction. My apartment changed how I view myself and gave me the control to say “No” to old influences. I’m proud of who I am and the work that I’ve put in to get here.” –Mandy, Business student, artist, and mentor.
