Why We like Working at Housing Families

I look forward to going to work every day. Every job has stressful days. But for me, on those days my team helps me smile through it. I feel like I not only have coworkers, but an extended family. And, even more beautifully, an extended family that believes in helping people, just like I do.” – Stacia

I like working for HFI because the leadership is very supportive of staff, and there are several opportunities for personal and professional growth.”

We work in a very diverse team and afforded the freedom to be ourselves, using our own unique skill-set – we are not a cookie cutter organization. It takes a village.” 

Housing Families provides an environment for families to live and grow. Often times you hear of agencies that provide support to families during difficult times, however, Housing Families provides support during, through, and after difficult times. We seek to see that our families’ needs are met year round. I enjoy working with families and seeing them endure the ups and the downs that life brings them. We are constantly working with our families to organize fundraiser for backpacks and school supplies in the fall, holiday gifts in the winter, cleaning supplies in the spring and summer camps in the summer”

 

“At the soul of eviction prevention is family sustainability. We don’t simply write a check to help cover rent, we work collaboratively with families supporting them to think creatively about how to best meet their own needs on a consistent basis. We are a sounding board, a connection to community resources, and provide emotional support to families when they need it the most. It is truly an honor to be a part of that process working at Housing Families.”  -Amanda Sagarin,  Program Manager Stabilization and Eviction Prevention
