Barb Poppe Stepping down at InterAgency Council
Our friend, Barb Poppe, from Columbus Ohio former shelter director and current US InterAgency Council on Homelessness has announced that she will step down next month. She is the wife of COHHIO Director,
Bill Faith and was the coordinator of funding in Columbus Ohio for
years. The InterAgency Council publishes reports on homelessness and
was the first agency to push a housing first strategy. They also have a
really nice newsletter. Barb put her stamp on the agency by focusing
on the rise in family homelessness and beginning to talk about the
problem of youth homelessness. The InterAgency Council is supposed to
work with all the federal departments (Social Security, HHS, HUD, Labor
and others) that may have cross agency concerns with homeless people.
