Naomi, Kris, and Brenda were infamous for their laughter—once one of them started laughing, it was contagious and could last for several minutes.
“I hope that just everybody that’s ever walked through those doors, whether it’s on Valencia or in the new space, that ATC is this incredibly special place that is always with me. Doesn’t matter if it’s past, present, or future. I just always feel like I’m there.” -Kris, Former Outreach Counselor
Naomi started first as an Outreach Counselor, followed by Brenda and then Kris. They worked amazingly well together and with the other ATC staff during a really harmonious time for the organization. Even through the 2008 recession, during which ATC had to cut back hours and pay, everybody stayed on the team and continued to provide the same quality support that ATC was known for on the streets.
We invited Naomi, Kris, and Brenda to reunite and reminisce about their time at ATC. For each of them, working at ATC was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. They described, in their own words, how special it was to work with clients with ATC’s unique approach and to have such a supportive and friendly team of coworkers.
