Please join us in welcoming Janie Cundiff to our staff as a Case Aide. Janie, a long-time BEDS volunteer and familiar face at the Ogden Avenue Supportive Housing facility front desk, is now a paid staff member through the Chicago-Cook workforce grant. She has a true passion for helping others and is often sought out by clients at BEDS.
Janie has worked as a client advocate, a specialized role that provides one-on-one attention to clients, and also has served as an Ignatius Volunteer Corps volunteer. As a Case Aide, Janie will be working even more closely with clients at BEDS. She helps clients run errands and delivers food as well as other needed items.
"I love it," she said. " I realized that the clients are people just like me. They are exactly like me."
