"Home is more than a floor plan … it’s an environment that’s shaped by people regardless of economics; and by promoting the idea of “community,” we initiate transformation on a broad scale."
– JOT Couch, Executive Director (2006-2020)

Resident Services Coordinat
Resident Services Coordinator Karen Maxwell met Angela and her kids while delivering snacks to students getting off the school bus. Karen learned that Angela recently moved to Texas after spending a short time in New Jersey where she immigrated to, from Guyana. There, she was was a school teacher, and wanted to get certified to teach in Texas, but wasn't sure where to start. After suggesting that Angela do substitute teaching while waiting to get certified, Karen invited her into the residential common room where they searched the different school districts in their area and found the information that she needed to apply. They also found the information that Angela needed to start the certification process to become a teacher through the Texas Education Association. A couple of weeks after their meeting, Angela reached out to Karen and let her know that she was on her way to be temporarily certified to teach in Texas and that she was enrolled in the program to be fully certified! Karen was so excited for Angela saying, "She told me that talking to me that day gave her the confidence to move forward! As you can imagine, this was a career high for me! This is why we at PRS do what we do!"
