OLHSA is the organization that stretched its wings and surrounded my family and me with hope, dignity and love. The staff at the Howell office is exceptional in their caring and empathy. Rather than being put out on the street after my landlord's house was being re-claimed by the bank, I was able to choose a wonderful house to rent through the HPRP housing program. Knowing that I was a single mother with three children, un-employed for over 7 months, and my savings exhausted, the housing coordinators were able to offer the right assistance at the right time. While receiving services, I was given financial planning guidance, created goals that would be tracked with OLHSA's assistance, and pursued my dream of returning to school for my Masters Degree in Psychology. I have received nothing but recognition and support for my volunteer services, personal accomplishments and continual struggles. I am thankful for the help I've received, the opportunity to give back to my community, and the relationships that have developed by being a part of OLHSA's extended family.

the housing programs, in moral and financial support, in volunteer opportunities, in personal recognition, in contributing to a cause, and to achieving my dreams.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Add staff to the small office, add job security for those that devote their lives to serving our community, and recognize their immense efforts in a more profound and public way.
