My name is Monica Martinez. I am 32 years old, born and raised in Salinas, CA. In 2016, I found myself homeless for making bad choices. I was homeless for about 3 ½ years. The worst experience ever. It’s not the life, I slept outside buildings, broke into empty buildings, in cars, friends’ houses, motel rooms, and in tents by the train tracks. It was awful and scary shit.
Finally after all this time, I got the opportunity to move into a studio and I’ve been blessed with Housing Resource Center. Juanita is an awesome person. She’s caring, and she is on top of her game, meaning she’s a hard working woman. Thanks to you and to your company for helping me, blessing me, caring for me, and being patient with me. I am very excited, happy, grateful, and thankful for all you’ve done.
