Is there a memorable moment or story that you’d like to share that you have experienced at the WCA?
My favorite story of working in The Shop is when a client came in and noticed that we had a small bike for a little boy in the front. She got really excited when she saw it, but it was out of her price range. She asked me if I could hold it while she ran upstairs to see if her caseworker could help her out. Her case worker did, and she was able to get the bike for her son. As she wheeled it out she told me that things had been going wrong for so long and this was the first time, in a long time, that she felt something had gone right. It was awesome to hear that!
