REACH Participant: Elijah
Elijah with our Systems Navigator: Heather
Meet Elijah, currently a participant in our Systems Navigation program. In his first encounter with our staff Heather, he had some reservations about the process. But as he stated, “I’ve been scared all my life, I’ve been hiding away, it’s time to get the help that I need”. Through our services, he has been able to get a job, which he currently loves, and is on the verge of signing off on housing. These goals are a great first step in being exactly where he wants to be in life. He recognizes that this process and his life have not been easy, but ultimately, he is in the driver’s seat and can control the direction he wants to go. He credits Heather for being a strong motivator, his rock, and someone who generally cares about his physical health. Simply put “Heather is amazing”.
For those seeking services but have some hesitation with getting started Elijah says, just come here. Secondly, have a strong structured plan on what it is you need and you can get the help. “They cannot help you if you can’t help yourself”.
Lastly, his advice for anyone in general going through tough times is a very simple, quote from his late father. “You have to crawl to walk, walk to run, don’t rush your life. Live your life to the fullest, but live it to the safest”.
