I am loving my new job. I plan to take the certification tests as soon as possible to become a certified peer support specialist. I currently work as a housing peer support specialist with a housing coalition. Our job is to work with clients who are at risk of becoming homeless due to addiction and /or mental health issues. Sometimes I work in the lobby though that is not part of my job description. I recently had the privilege of assessing a client who was suicidal and helping keep them safe. The initial assessment revealed no plan to harm so I did not take it farther. I have to say that in my job I never know from one day to the next what I will be doing. I could be walking a client’s dog or assessing the client for suicidal ideas. You never know, which is why I love my work. Please pray that I am able to get all my certifications but more importantly that I can make an impact on my client’s lives. My colleagues say I am developing good rapport with my clients and doing so faster than expected. Everything is looking up and I thank my Lord Jesus Christ for that.
