OUTREACH & DIVERSION
Diversion is a strategy that prevents homelessness for people seeking shelter by helping them identify immediate alternate housing arrangements and, if necessary, connecting them with services and financial assistance to help them return to permanent housing.
Staffing changes have enabled us to expand and deepen our work with the most vulnerable in our community. Lea Thullbery, our intrepid Case Coordinator, is now City with Dwellings’ Director of Diversion and Outreach.
As Lea continues to lead this amazing work, two current staff members joined her team. Krista O’Connell has transitioned to the position of Diversion and Outreach Specialist, and Mark Dockery moved into a full-time role as our Transportation and Street Outreach Specialist.
