Maintaining a Positive Mindset
Quentin, 34, spent three years in the United States Air Force before being medically discharged from the military. Since then, Quentin has experienced multiple difficulties as a result of mental and physical trauma he experienced in the military. He lost his job as a result of COVID-19 which made it difficult for him to pay his bills.
Initially, Quentin came to Volunteers of America (VOA) Texas for help paying his bills and finding employment. “The staff at VOA Texas worked to make sure I maximized every opportunity within the organization to ensure my success.” Months after becoming a program participant, Quentin and his family experienced the light of VOA Texas when they received a Thanksgiving meal and Christmas presents for their young children during the holidays.
However, Quentin realized he needed a more help to sustain the blessings his family received from the organization. “I came to Volunteers of America Texas for additional help with my mental health. Which, I must say this is by far the best program I have ever been in. Stephanie has helped me tremendously with not only my mental health but also personal growth. She is highly trained and I can tell that she cares for her clients,” he shared. “In the time of COVID and being in between jobs, the case management services allowed me to focus on my sessions without having any worry about how I will pay my bills. I will be forever grateful for the staff at VOA Texas and how they’ve helped my family.”
