Staff Spotlight: Erykah

Erykah, an Army veteran, joins Arm In Arm as our Community Outreach Worker and Cookwell Program Assistant. As part of our team, she engages community members experiencing homelessness in accessing resources and conducts life skills groups for citizens reentering society. Erykah comes to us with an extensive background working with developmentally disabled, at-risk youth and post-incarcerated populations; she most recently served as a Program Counselor at Bo Robinson Treatment & Assessment Center and Case Manager at NJAC at Mercer County Resource Center. “Many of us are just one step away from being homeless. All it takes is a terminal illness, an accident, or some unexpected life change,” says Erykah. “That’s why my role at Arm In Arm is so rewarding. Every morning I wake up knowing I can make a difference in at least one person’s life.”
