I have been working at The Albany Damien Center for nearly two weeks now and everything is still going really well! I have been doing lots of reading and research and today I'll be attending an HMIS training (Homeless Management Information System). It's amazing that even though I have been working with 'marginalized' populations for a while now how little I seem to know about PLWA/H - it has been really interesting to do the research and speak with the members. The only downside of the job at this point is that I share an office (a very small office) with about fifteen people (working at various times throughout the day) and a desk with about five - and the computer is about as slow as molasses rolling uphill. Luckily I will be getting a lap top within the next couple of weeks and I have the ability to work remotely.

And in honor of Valentine's Day I made a couple of things for the ADC members!
