April 2017 – “Remarkable.” That is the word housing counselor Geraldine Murrell-Godfrey uses to describe this month’s featured client, Heather Zipper. Heather joined the Shelter Plus Care Program in 2008 and has taken advantages of all programs, services, resources and leads that were presented to her as a housing participant. She has also been very diligent at following up on outside referrals that were presented to her. An excellent student, graduating with honors from Tarrant County College and then also cum laude from the University of Texas at Arlington with a Bachelor’s in Social Work, she has worked part-time through school while also being the single parent of a young autistic son. In addition to her many scholastic awards, December 2016 brought Ms. Zipper the additional recognition when she was presented with Fort Worth Housing Solutions’ Special Program Personal achievement Award. Congratulations, Heather!
