Nick, a Clinical Case Manager for The People Concern’s Santa Monica C3 Outreach team, shares a recent success story he had with a program participant he had been trying to engage for the past year.
“She was a heavy substance user, there was also sex trafficking and domestic violence happening,” says Nick. She was resistant to receiving help at first, but Nick and his team never gave up on her. Taking a harm reduction approach, Nick consistently engaged with her, over time built a trusting relationship and she eventually agreed to enroll in services. Nick was able to move her into a sanctuary for women where she could safely work on her sobriety away from the dangers and violence of the streets. “Today she is like a completely different person,” says Nick.
Thank you, Nick for sharing such a powerful success story with us!
