On March 12th Housing Action Illinois hosted their annual fundraiser at Lagunitas Brewing to celebrate Housing Champions of all kinds. Attending this celebration, spending time with my peers makes me think: what does it mean to be a Housing Champion?
Senior Moments from H.O.M.E.
During my time as Good Life Coordinator at Nathalie Salmon House, I have learned that there are so many ways to connect generations. I have bonded with residents at museums, picnics, during nature walks, constructing one of our many puzzles, or just sharing a meal together.
Today the Good Life Coordinators are taking over Senior Moments from H.O.M.E.! I am the coordinator at Nathalie Salmon House (NSH) and Maggie is the coordinator at Pat Crowley House (PCH).
Maggie and I have been a part of the H.O.M.E. family for nearly a year. With my background in social work and Maggie’s in gerontology, we may have thought we knew what we were walking into, but we have learned a lot about what the Good Life is all about.
