MUTUAL HOUSING CALIFORNIA
November 23, 2010

I have been familiar with the work of SMHA for many years, but I never really understood the lifelong impact of their services on residents, volunteers, staff and board members until I interned with them for a summer. As an SMHA intern I collaborated with residents to facilitate youth computer and art programs. I also supported resident families in navigating bureaucratic processes in order to receive social services. I formed friendships with people of many ages and cultures as both residents and staff members who all share a commitment to cultivating safe, supportive, and educated communities. I feel privileged to have been a part of SMHA. I am inspired by their mission and the passion with which they fulfill it every day.
