The staff at Open Arms worked with our organization to help move a client into housing. Open Arms was very welcoming and worked with us to help the client feel comfortable. They listened to our client's needs and concerns and were very hospitable. It is always a pleasure to see OAH staff at meetings and at advocacy efforst throughout the city.
