Bio:

I work at Safe Place for Youth in Venice Beach as the Access Center Associate providing services to homeless youth ages 12-26. I ended up here because I believe the housing is a right and I want to learn about game-changing solutions to ending youth homelessness. I want to be apart of the mentorship network because ending homelessness is a team effort.
