July’s Employee of the Month nomination from Assisted Housing is Housing Specialist, Maria Chamberlain. With no previous housing experience, Maria’s motivation to learn and succeed allowed her to excel in her position of VASH Housing Specialist. It is Maria’s work ethic and attention to detail that allows her to stand apart from others. She has been recognized for having the highest quarterly QC score and she is often on the list of those with scores of 100%. Her average QC score since she started in 2017 is 92%. Maria’s exceptional job performance goes beyond processing files. She also exhibits compassion in dealing with our veterans. On one occasion, a veteran was having difficulties and wanted to just give up and relinquish the voucher. Maria told the veteran, “please do not relinquish your voucher, you do not want to be homeless again. Each veteran deserves to have their own apartment. . . you were dealing with the situation (and you will) probably find a place that you really like. Please keep me informed about your decision.” For her commitment to learn and grow, to excel in her job duties, and for bringing understanding and compassion to her position, we recognize Maria Chamberlain as Employee of the Month.
