Welcome to "A day in the life of JOIN"

There's a lot to learn about JOIN from the statistics you find on our home page. It matters a great deal how many people we are able to help into housing, how long they remain housed, and what it costs to achieve these successes.

But very often supporters tell us they get more insight into JOIN's work from the stories of staff people and the individuals who they work with. So we're using this blog to report, in virtually real-time, the often chaotic, sometimes happy, and sometimes tragic details of the day-to-day activities of JOIN staff.

We've asked our outreach and retention team members to each spend a week posting brief updates on how they spent their days. We will, of course, protect the privacy of the individuals who we are working with by avoiding or changing details that might reveal their identities. But our goal is to provide unfiltered and very concrete reports on what we do.

Please feel free to share your thoughts or questions in response to the posts.

Thank you for your interest!

Hi,

What a great idea! I hope JOIN clients will also be encouraged to Post. How about move in day experiences and photos?
