Outreach Intern, Bronx, NY - June 8, 2016
The Health Home program has so much to offer but people are not really wanting to sign up for the services they will miss appt.'s give the wrong numbers, will not call if not wanting services but when things get a little rough they will call and want the workers to solve all the issues that they have let get out of control. I have learned so much of all services, my Supervisor is tops she is very understanding but most of all she will allow me to choose when I go out in the field, she has helped me to say no if I am unable to, meaning Never promise what isn't in my job description, my coworkers are very lovely talented women from different nationalities, but more so they are all caring young women that want the best for the families that we are all trying to help. The hardest part of my job is not being able to give the client the help that they ask me for especially when not only them but we all need housing affordable housing and most of all work paycheck to paycheck so I can imagine how it is for a family with 1 pay check or no paycheck life can be very stressful. but I do love it when I or the staff can help a family find what they are needing, whether it being doctor therapist or a dentist by just helping in that part to making it easier it touches home meaning our job, my enjoyable part of work is knowing that I matter at my job my role in finding that client that has gone missing is what I enjoy cause when I find them its up to them to let me know if they want to continue services or not. A typical say at work is knowing that we all got home ok to make it back another day.
