Tabitha recently celebrated her four year anniversary at EDEN. She is the Lead Scattered-Site Property Manager, and the Supervisor of Scattered-Sites. Tabitha currently has a caseload of 152 clients that are living in 45 properties.
Tabitha graduated with a degree in Social Work from the University of Akron, and is a licensed social worker. Prior to joining EDEN, she worked for other social service agencies and also in property management.
Tabitha shared that the most challenging part of her job is not always being able to give clients everything they desire, and that she has to remember that she is property manager, in her current role, rather than a social worker. She also shared that there is a high need for more family living, and sometimes, there are not enough units available when they are needed.
When asked what she finds the most rewarding part of her work Tabitha quickly affirmed, “The tenants! Interacting with the clients, and giving a person or family the keys to a safe place to live.”
When we asked Tabitha what advice she would have for someone experiencing housing insecurity or homelessness, she stated, "Stay positive, and keep working with your case manager".
EDEN so appreciates Tabitha-and all our staff-for their commitment to our mission, which is: " to provide housing solutions to people facing the challenges of housing insecurities and homelessness".
