What is the most important part of your day?
“The most rewarding part of my day within HHH is seeing our clients complete our program by showing good behavior, medication compliance, and being housed. It warms my heart to see the hard work and dedication of our team and clients working together with one end goal: achieving housing and having a better life. The mission of our organization speaks volumes because it is a total reflection of what we do every day.”
