Meet Barbara

Barbara joined our Rapid Rehousing Rental Assistance Program in 2014 and worked on financial goals towards housing stability. After completing the program, Barbara continued in our Phase 2 Program for case management support. As a Certified Home Health Aide and Medical Assistant for 18 years, Barbara continues to seek continuing education in the medical field. She has also been accepted into a first-time homebuyer’s program. Her motivation inspires her three children and six grandchildren.

“You can’t just talk about it. You have to be about it and you need support along the way. HOME took a chance on me and has been by my side very step of the way.”

Volunteering provides empowerment and is a gateway to connecting with your community. Volunteers play many supportive roles throughout our programming. No gesture is too big or too small to truly make an impact in someone’s life. We value the many volunteers whose contribution to HOME is reflected in the victories of our families as they work towards independence.
