SUCCESS STORY

A single mother of two enrolled in the program
with no stable income and no employment.
The client was connected to multiple job
resources.
The Case Manager worked
intensively with the client to get jobs and finish
her court-mandated classes, parenting,
domestic violence, and anger management
classes. The client was successfully hired,
and now she is full-time employed.

TESTIMONIALS

Good Neighbors was a stepping stone that helped me escape from my
domestic violence partner and restart my life. I am grateful to all of the
staff that help me find permanent housing. They had provided me with
the resources I needed to achieve my goal and gave me words of
encouragement. They opened up their doors and their services to me
with open arms. The staff is extremely nice and will guide you on
anything that you need to accomplish. I was provided with room and
board, plus, breakfast and dinner was delivered everyday to the
facility. When I had first called Good Neighbors, they were really
concerned about my safety, and asked me if I was able to break free
from my partner. They had sent a car to pick me up and bring me
directly to the house. I am very happy with my apartment and their
services. I now have the time to work on my masters degree and
achieve my long term goals I set forth for myself. Good Neighbors is a
place that really cares for individuals in need and is filled with joy when
one of their clients succeeds. I end with these words to remember..

"Thank you Good Neighbors, thank you for everything"

-PAST CLIENT

I pretty much appreciate Good Neighbors for giving me a chance to
make a change in my life. With Dominque as my Case Manager and the
other staff checking in with me on a regular basis I felt as if I belong
here. I found my inner peace, progressed in my domestic violence
classes, started working and my savings. Good Neighbors gave me
structure to use during my day to day life. I learned how to be
organized and prompt. They accept women with situations, help them
strive to do better and guide them with encouragement. They taught
me respect and I am thankful for that, which allows me to be the
person who I am today.
