I had the amazing opportunity to accompany some of the Back Bay Mission’s staff to an award ceremony awarding our Executive Director, Dr. Alice Graham at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino. She humbly accepted the award on behalf of all of Back Bay Mission and I was very proud to be a part of that. It is hard to imagine that I am wrapping up my last week here at Back Bay Mission. This has been a great summer filled with not only learning but fun as well. From running the Day Center to checking clients into the food pantry. I cherish every experience I have had thus far.
I am currently in the process of seeing one of our clients receive housing. He is currently homeless but is merely one step away from having his apartment. This is something that has truly been the “icing on the cake” for this entire internship. Ms. Loretta has given me personal insight into her housing program, and I enjoy going onsite visits with her and getting a chance to speak with the managers and step into her shoes. This week has definitely been one to remember!
