What do you do at the County?

As a Housing Specialist, I manage a caseload of rental assistance contracts and help families in need find safe and affordable housing. 

What do you like most about your job?

I have the opportunity to work directly with the community I serve.  The calls and thank you cards that I have received from tenants expressing their gratitude for the Rental Assistance Program brings so much joy to my day.

What's your favorite memory from your work?

The first time I had a participant call in to say, “Thank you for all that your program has done for me and my family.  We are able to make it on our own now and longer need your help.”

What does Live Well San Diego mean to you?
