A Way Home Washington is happy to announce that we have hired the final two members of our staff. Timothy Bell will be our Lead Coach and Liz Harding Chao will be our Data Manager.
Tim experienced multiple periods of homelessness throughout his childhood before coming to the attention of the Washington child welfare system. After many years and much struggle, he became an advocate, organizing on behalf of youth and young adults. He worked to promote the voices of youth in the policy-making and implementation process before going back to school for a graduate degree from the Evans School of Public Policy & Governance.
Liz is an award-winning international researcher, originally from Melbourne, Australia. While in Melbourne she worked as a policy adviser for the Victorian State Government’s Department of Economic Development. Liz’s research and teaching focuses on the intersections between human rights, equity and public policy and centers the voices of those most impacted by injustice.
We look forward to Tim and Liz joining us next week and completing our Anchor Community Initiative team.
Please help us give them a warm welcome!
