I currently work as the master housing navigator in region one, which is a three-year position funded by the DDPC through the New York Alliance for Inclusion and Innovation. In this role, I am working across the region to build capacity and collaboration among key housing stakeholders in order to support the development, creation, and implementation of individualized housing options for individuals with I/DD.
Privately, I also provide consultation services as a certified housing navigator for those interested in developing a housing plan and pursuing the goal of having their own place. As a former fiscal intermediary, I have extensive experience in utilizing self-direction services to support people with living in their own home, including housing plans that utilize shared living arrangements, shared staffing, and pooled budget resources.
