This #ThankfulThursday, we’re celebrating Maggie Manda, our Director of Housing Coordination. Described by a fellow colleague as “a quiet powerhouse,” Maggie works with 10 to 20 clients at a time, helping each navigate different processes to secure housing, from managing paperwork (and there is quite a lot of that!) to accompanying clients on apartment visits. Maggie is a fierce advocate for our clients and notes: “I have a soft spot for all my clients, but especially those who get here and feel hopeless, those who believe they won’t ever get to the point of finding housing. They don’t even know where to start. Sometimes all they need is encouragement. Other times they need help figuring out the process. My favorite part of this job is when I take the clients who have lost all hope of ever finding housing and having them say, ‘I got my keys. I signed my lease.’” Let’s give it up for Maggie! 🙌🏾
The sun came out just in time for this stellar group from @synchrony to roll up their sleeves and put in some serious WORK at our Woodland Campus, home to our women’s shelter, permanent supportive housing, and transitional housing for adults living with chronic mental illness and HIV/AIDS. Thanks for contributing your time and enthusiasm - Woodland is looking 😍💯
We believe in helping our clients achieve their individual potential. We also think it's absolutely critical to address the root causes of homelessness, so that once our clients leave Inspirica, they stay housed and stay employed. One way we do this is through our Jumpstart Career Program and vocational training (https://bit.ly/2NmlJDK), reason #4 #WhyWeWalk on October 7 in the ONE STEP CLOSER TO HOME Walkathon in #Stamford.

We’re getting hungry just thinking back on this dinner! 🍝 Big THANK YOU to this terrific group of volunteers from @jpmorgan who cooked and served a wonderful meal for clients in our Early Childhood & Parenting Program!
