I really couldn't do this job without them

STEAC is an extraordinary organization. I think that many of our residents over my time [at Creekside] really would not have been able to become housed or stayed housed unless it was for STEAC… I think they have a great criteria for help that empowers people. I really couldn’t do this job without them.
