When I first met Rashida she made me feel welcome with her pleasant smile and wonderful personality. Rashida has shown me lots of love and support. She has kept motivated to accomplish my goals for myself, and my family. Rashida was there for us recently when our refrigerator went down due to poor management. She provided my family, and I with a gift card to buy groceries. She truly has a heart of gold.
Ms.Kim has always been a community leader! Whenever, I needed help accessing an address, phone number or information to help my family ,and I she would be the first person I would look to for help. Ms.Kim is also my advocate when I feel I like I don’t have a voice. She is a second mother to me ,and I am so glad to be on a new journey to access every resource available for me at It Takes A Village DC!
