My name is Sydnie Day. I am the Case Manager Supervisor at Utah’s place. I help to keep the shelter running smoothly while supervising case managers and advocating for guests and clients. I want to talk about long-time client, Dill. Dill came to us at the shelter in October 2021. He owns a property in North San Juan that he lived on for many years. Unfortunately, code enforcement red tagged it, and Dill had nowhere to go. We got him into CMSPLACN and Case Manager Fred got him connected to primary care–Dill hadn’t seen a doctor in years. With the support of case managers, Dill applied for and was awarded Social Security retirement and opened a bank account. In September, Dill was approved to move into Brunswick Commons, our subsidized housing complex. He is thrilled to have his own place and is continuing to repair his property in North San Juan, now that he is back on his feet physically, financially, and mentally. Hats off to Dill!
