Get to Know Maria Ayala from Family & Emergency Services
As Rapid Rehousing Manager for our new outreach program,
Maria Ayala works with unsheltered clients to connect them with
any services they may need and get them into housing while
working on a plan for long-term sustainability. Maria has filled
many shoes as a case manager at the Christian Service Center
and has been servicing the clients of CSC for almost 20 years.
Maria’s favorite part of her day-to-day work is that it is gratifying
to know that God would give her the blessing to help and see how
grateful individuals and families are after helping and giving
them that push that they needed to get them where they want to
be. She loves to help those who don’t have a voice to better tell
their story. Maria expresses her gratitude for being in a work
environment where the atmosphere is warm and welcoming; she
does not feel pressured by her work but feels respected and
competent amongst her colleagues.
In her free time, Maria enjoys spending time with her family and
can be found in her garden tending to the flowers, herbs, and
pineapples that she is currently growing.
