As a former state employee assigned to work at Palmer Court I think it is important to support the staff and management of Palmer Court. I have seen the staff work tirelessly to maintain the campus, repainting, repairing and cleaning every single day. And so much more than that. Everyone works together to help people stabilize and heal. People who live in the community have very serious issues to cope with. The staff are kind, compassionate and humane - something that the residents have not always received. As long term resident said to me - we know what people outside of Palmer Court think of us and we know they wish we didn't exist. The life journeys of people living there are often horrendous and I don't know how they had the strength to keep living. Yes there are issues every day in living there and a few need help beyond the scope of what Palmer Court can provide. Before a person is evicted staff have gone above and beyond to help resolve the problems, find solutions, relocate, obtain more treatment and simply talk with the person involved. I am truly thankful that places like Palmer Court exist and are supported by the community.
