As the PALS Community Support Specialist, Courtney is the case manager, life coach, and emotional support for our homeless youth. She states, “I am grateful for the position since it allows me the opportunity to assist youth with regaining their confidence and independence. I love helping young adults learn new skills that will allow the doors of opportunity to open for them.”

Courtney’s favorite quote is, “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you make them feel.” -Maya Angelou
