This includes providing direct services to families experiencing homelessness, administering housing programs, developing and advocating for federal-level housing policies at the Center for American Progress, and providing technical assistance and consultation to communities nationwide that are working at the intersection of homelessness and employment.
Heidi is a Southern California native and lives in CD4. She holds a BA in American Studies from Georgetown University and a Master of Public Policy from UCLA and loves journalism and international travel.
