AN AMAZING CLIENT WHO NEVER GAVE UP AND SAW FAITH IN COMPASS CAREER SOLUTIONS
Compass Career Solutions LLC in Vancouver, WA would like to introduce someone who is truly amazing, Tammy. Tammy was referred to us by ALTSA because she was having a difficult time finding housing. Tammy faced several barriers to finding housing including a financial barrier. Due to past accidents and other health-related issues, Tammy was unable to work and consequently afford to live. Tammy never gave up. Tammy began working with Compass Career Solutions, in the FCS supportive housing program, to find a way to be able to support herself and gain her independence back. Tammy and her supportive housing case manager, Ryan, worked together in researching different programs that would help her in her pursuit of independence. In doing so, Tammy applied with Housing Authority as well as Housing Opportunities of South West Washington. In a short time, Tammy’s name came up on the list for low-income housing. Compass worked alongside Tammy through the paperwork process, orientation, and the move-in process.
Today, Tammy is living on her own. She is able to come and go as she pleases. Decorate her apartment however she wants and is able to feel safe and secure both physically and financially. She was able to manage her own money and buy what she felt was necessary. Most importantly Tammy has began to gain back her independence and begin moving forward on her own.
“You guys have been amazing. Compass was always right there when I needed the help. I was so grateful for their work that I have referred many of my friends, who are in similar situations, to Compass for their help”. -Tammy Atchley.
