“ Coming to Community Action Agency Of New Haven has given me skills I didn’t know I Possessed.”
Daisy is a program director she prides herself on her attention to detail and a cool composure works well with clients who come to CAANH under stressful circumstances. She came to CAANH in 2000 as a part time customer services representative and a front desk receptionist. While still a temp she also assumed the position of a housing specialist for ARRA. After her early success and professionalism she was brought on full time as a homebound Specialist. She was also selected as a Results Based Accountability (RBA) coach. The training took two years, and soon after, she trained the CAANH staff. Daisy, along with two others at CAANH, enrolled 800 people in Obama’s Access Health program. Daisy was promoted in 2014 to Assistant Manager for the Energy Department and, as a result, she was transformed from a hard worker to a smart worker; and a leader! Her experience here has given her more confidence with her life and with people that she serves in the community.
