We are impacting our state, counties, community, down to the individual.
"One of the main things is, to help continue to reduce the stigma because everyone feels as though the clients are not a part of so events like this helps them feel a part of and a part of the community which reduces the overall stigma of mental health. For those clients who don’t have family, or their families are not near it helps them feel included. Increases socialization skills, communication and gives them a break from the everyday routine."
“GLOM has helped me a lot. If it wasn't for GLOM I wouldn't be alive. They really take care of me. Before, I use to sleep on the streets and do drugs and now I'm doing so much better. I'm 5 months sober! I never thought I would make it to 5 months!”
“GLOM has helped my anxiety and how to manage it. GLOM helped me learn how to focus on myself and my health. Being around caring people has built my confidence. I have done more hygiene then I’ve done before. I’ve also learned self-care, all the clothes that was purchased for me when I had nothing at all. I learned how to make an email from the amazing patient staff at Lodi walking me through the steps. When I leave, I’m going to really miss it here. The genuine and caring GLOM staff, the cooking people and my peers as well. I feel my life will be successful this time from all the help I’ve gotten.”
“I've been homeless off and on but I decided to get my life together. I started the program and since I've been here, I'm getting stable on my meds. I'm working on being able to get my own apartment.”
“There is nothing you guys can do better, it’s impossible to be better than the best.”
“GLOM has allowed me to become part of Livermore society. In being a part of Livermore, I have found my true self. I am learning to prepare for my independence. I've been at GLOM for a year and four months and I feel I have successfully learned how to govern myself as a law abiding citizen.”
“Services are really great. Everyone is into their job. Everyone equally cares.”
“GLOM has helped me so much with learning how to communicate. This program has helped me find myself when I thought I was lost. I learned how to control my anger and be more social with peers. GLOM has helped me learn my medication and what it does for me. The spa days were so nice and I’m just grateful to meet cool people who are not judgmental.”
“I feel like GLOM has changed my life and I say this because I realize where my head is really at and I feel loved. Because of GLOM, I realize that I can change and move on from the past and I know that adulthood is hard but motherhood is definitely harder. I really was impacted by GLOM and I feel like now I can choose to be better than the things that I have seen.”
“The service here is wonderful. Everyone is going out of their way. I feel at home here when I shouldn’t after 8 years of homelessness.”
