The Face You Make When Your Housing Specialist Says She Doesn’t Know What Square Footage Is

Who trains these people? What exactly are the requirements for earning the title of “housing specialist”?

My shelter’s “housing specialist” was talking to me about renting a studio. I asked her what the square footage was. (NOTE: I’ve seen some pretty tiny studios for exorbitant prices.) Her response was she didn’t know what square footage was. SMH!! This is the same person who repeatedly bragged about buying a house during meetings when she should have been providing my family with housing help. How do you not know?! Again, SMH!!
