Review for Mutual Housing California, Sacramento, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Mutual Housing is a valued and crucial partner with Volunteers of America transitional housing programs. Mutual Housing provides Volunteers of America referred clients comfortable, well maintained, and properly managed apartment units. Mutual Housing and the Property Managers are very understanding of the issues of low-income households and do an amazing job of accommodating Volunteers of America clients. Any Volunteers of America client issues at an apartment are address in a respectful and timely manner. This allows for Volunteers of America staff to intervene to resolve issues.

Review for Mutual Housing California, Sacramento, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

While in the Master of Social Work program at CSUS, I sought out enriching internship (aka field placement) opportunities in affordable housing. Through partnerships and great working relationships between CHOC, SMHA, and CSUS I was able to intern at SMHA even though there was no MSW or LCSW there. SMHA and CSUS were great in creating a supervision structure for me since I was eager to learn about community development. The Lead Community Organizers who did immediate supervision had Master degrees and provided a great wealth of knowledge. SMHA stresses the importance of developing relationships. Getting first hand experience in the mutual housing model gave me great perspective and confidence adding on to my knowledge of service enriched housing. SMHA is really great about reaching out to extremely culturally diverse populations.

Role:  Volunteer & Helped organize a community in creating the Peter Burnnett Community Garden in Fruitridge Manor. This involved outreach, recruiting, facilitating meetings, accentuating strengths of participants, and getting my hands dirty creating the community garden.
