I have known of this organization since 2010. The staff members go above & beyond every single day to help anyone who walks through the door looking for assistance. They reach a huge area & provide such needed services for some of the most vulnerable residents of the Northern Panhandle.
I have been affiliated with the GWCH since 2007; however, long before I started providing mental health services to the clients at the coalition I had heard from community members, stakeholders, providers, clients, etc., what an amazing organization the GWCH was. For many of the GWCH clients, this organization has been a Godsend; for most, a lifeline; for all, a goal-directed path toward improved situations and a higher quality of life. There has been very little turnover in staff throughout the existence of the coalition; therefore, there is consistency, continuity, and a genuine camaraderie amongst and between the administration, case management, support staff and adjunct providers that is transmitted to excellent client care. Clients often express a sense of belonging and a deep gratitude to the people of the organization for demonstrating compassion but also knowing when and how to push them toward successful transitions.
I am a therapist and refer to this program. They get it . They help people get into housing and mantain their new housing. They do not just feed homless and give them blankets.

I have know this agency for many years and have been blessed to watch them grow to where they are now. The staff from the Director down are an inspiration to all of us when it comes to caring for those who need services the most. We could all learn from this team.
