From Seeking Shelter to Shaping Lives

Share This Great Story

After fleeing from an abusive relationship with her two young boys, Ashley had no idea where she was going to live. When she moved into Good Sam’s housing, she began setting goals, budgeting, saving money, meeting weekly with a mentor, and rebuilding a sense of confidence and self-worth.

Ashley had made huge strides in her journey to stability when the position of Program Administrative Assistant opened at Good Sam. Excited at the opportunity to help others experiencing similar situations to her own, Ashley interviewed for the role and was officially offered the position in December 2023!

In her role, Ashley is often the first point of contact for individuals seeking services. She answers phones, conducts screenings, refers resources, responds to website inquiries, and maintains connections with alumni through thoughtful follow-ups. Her favorite aspect of the job is expressing compassion to those reaching out, drawing from her personal experience as a Good Sam program graduate.

Ashley enjoys walks while her boys ride their scooters, and is an avid fan of reality shows on Bravo TV. Family holds a special place in her heart, and she values spending quality time with loved ones.
