House of Ruth

Letter of Inspiration: Teresa’s Story

by Teresa*

I would like to thank my case manager and the House of Ruth program for all you’ve done for me. Finding a roof over my head was all I ever wanted and needed, you guys did that. You made it possible. My case manager checked up on me daily. She gave me inspiration and motivation. So many times I wanted to say ‘I quit nobody wants to approve me.’ She pushed me to keep going. She’s the best case manager ever! No matter how down and depressed I felt she made me feel so much better. I really appreciate this program and glad you guys could help me. Words CANNOT describe the way I feel. The joy I now have. I am very much grateful. I really appreciate everything that’s been done and the rest that has yet to come. With this program I was able to build a relationship with myself. I saw my own potential for the first time. My case manager made sure no matter what was going on we were going to find me a place. We worked as a team. She was my biggest supporter. She’s like my family. She would come to wherever I was just to give me advice and make sure I’m hanging in there. I never felt this much love in a very long time. Thank you to my case manager and House of Ruth. You guys are the best program anyone could come past. Keep up the great work!
