“SAM was a blessing from God.”
John Metz was on the verge of becoming homeless nearly 10 years ago when SAM stepped in to help him.
He was referred to Service Access and Management via a personal care home he was staying at and they helped him obtain better housing.
Supports Coordinator Alicia Gambler helped John get emergency respite and group home placement through ReDCo, an organization that helps people experiencing life challenges. This partnership helped John connect with ReDCo Lifesharing Provider Ricardo Vazquez.
SAM helped John rebound from some personal struggles and he’s grateful to have Alicia’s help.
“Alicia always smiles. She’s always happy to see me when she comes to the house,” he said.
SAM also previously helped John obtain an apartment through Supportive Concepts, which provides public support to individuals with Mental Health/Intellectual Developmental Disability disabilities.
