049: Susan McLarty - What is a homeless coordinator?

Susan McLarty is the Coordinator of the Greenville Homeless Alliance, which is a broad public private partnership to broaden support of making homelessness brief and rare in Greenville County. 

Greenville Homeless Alliance recently hired Susan McLarty to be the community’s first homeless coordinator. Susan will “literally open doors here in Greenville for people in desperate need of safe, affordable housing,” said Tony McDade, who chairs the steering committee for the Greenville Homeless Alliance in addition to being the director of United Ministries.

What does it mean to be a community’s first homeless coordinator and what does it take to identify the need to create such a position. Does it mean she is building homes for the homeless population, is she literally helping each individual into a shelter…what does one do in this new position?

I wanted to meet her, learn more about her passions, and what does it mean for a community to admit it is time to find someone to take a leadership role in such a vital conversation. I hope you enjoy our conversation!
