‘We’re a good fit’
Zoey has been an RHD client since 2013, and now lives with RHD EFH provider Rafietou Tchatchasse-Ali. Zoey attends school, goes shopping, swims at the local public pool and is active in the community.
“Life is really great together,” Zoey said. “We look out for each other, and we support each other.”
“I’m really grateful for this opportunity,” Tchatchasse-Ali. “In the EFH program, Zoey has more freedom in a home environment. This is her home; she doesn’t have a roommate. It’s perfect for us; we’re a good fit.”
