Senior Program Officer, Technical Assistance
Tiffany was raised in Ohio and comes to True Colors United from Austin, TX with a background of over 10 years working to end homelessness. She believes that her lived expertise of homelessness and housing instability is what brought her to this work. What keeps here is the desire and drive to dismantle systems of oppression and white supremacy alongside young people and partners in this work so that we can all truly experience liberation. Her background is rooted in social work and social justice. Approaching this work with a healing centered mindset, empathy, open mindedness and compassionate curiosity is what keeps her grounded. Before joining True Colors United, Tiffany worked as a HUD Technical Assistance Provider, CoC Leader, and direct service provider in communities across the country working to end homelessness. She believes that to end homelessness communities MUST be led by the experts-meaning young people with lived expertise of homelessness. “Those closest to the problem are closest to the solutions, but often furthest from the resources, influence, and power.”
When she’s not working with young people or as a community organizer, she’s spending time with her baby tiger Aslan, face-timing with family & friends, getting lost out in nature, pretending to be a foodie, or going on random adventures.
