For as long as I've been associated with the Human Services Center, I've been amazed by just how committed the organization is to making sure that there are no wrong doors for accessing service. When I was an intern, we would get phone calls from folks looking for services we didn't provide and my first inclination was to say, "sorry, we don't do that". But the director at the time made it clear to me that that wasn't good enough, and that we should always make sure that, at the very least, folks left us headed in the right direction for services. This constant commitment to the individuals we saw every day, whether or not they were part of our core service population has always impressed me and been a lesson to me in my professional life.
