Current Public-Health Related Activities

As a member of Project HOME’s Executive Team, I help direct strategies for eliminating chronic street homelessness in Philadelphia. Current projects include a $250 million, multi-year strategy to address three specific areas: street homelessness among a targeted list of the most vulnerable individuals; homelessness among young adults age 18-25; and employment and housing to alleviate homelessness among individuals with substance use disorders. Through partnerships with internal and external stakeholders, we provide housing, integrated healthcare, education, and employment opportunities to help break the cycle of homelessness and poverty.
