"Thank you so much for supporting our community during the pandemic. I am overwhelmingly grateful for the rental assistance program. It's been a huge relief for me to receive a grant as I navigate sudden changes in employment and it has allowed me to stay in Summit. This note doesn't do my appreciation justice, but please know that I am so thankful for all the hard work you engage with and the positive impact it is having on residents like me."
"My husband was injured on the job and can't walk or work. It's been a month with no income and my Parent Educator referred me to the Family Support program. The only person who is always supporting me is my Parent Educator. When life is hard, she helps me to be strong and able to deal with anything life puts in front of me."
"I was talking to one of my clients this week and her experience with the ALMA program is literally life and sanity saving for her. I wanted to congratulate your team. Please let them know that from my side of the treatment continuum, I can see the difference it's making in the lives of the women involved. What your program is doing is important and it matters.
