“I love the work and everyone is easy to get along with.”
“I know it's hard to find resources when you feel your at the end of your rope and have no where to go. Now I feel I am at the "where to go" place, and I love what ACTION Housing does for people. ”
“Just coming to work and helping people find housing is motivational enough. I feel if I help one person a day, it's better than none. ”
“Everyone knows their job really well, therefore things are done efficiently.”
