THN Welcomes Kameron Fowler to the Team!
Texas Homeless Network (THN) is pleased to announce that Kameron Fowler, LMSW, has accepted the position of Continuum of Care Director.
Kameron has over 13 years of experience in housing and homelessness programs in Austin, Los Angeles and Australia. Most recently an independent consultant and trainer for local and statewide non-profits including THN, Kameron has held varied administrative and direct care roles within the homeless services sector in the specialties of medical respite, shelter case management, housing stability case management, mental health case management, HIV services, DV, and street outreach. She has successfully implemented and secured funding for multiple HUD Housing First Permanent Supportive Housing Programs, Rapid Re-Housing Programs and an AmeriCorps program focused on housing. Kameron served as the Director of Strategic Initiatives of the Austin CoC where she laid the groundwork and began coordinated assessment implementation for Austin/Travis County. Prior to that, she served as the Program Director at Front Steps, the non-profit that runs the ARCH (Austin Resource Center for the Homeless), Austin’s largest shelter.
Kameron earned her MSSW from the University of Texas at Austin’s Advanced Standing Program and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from Texas Tech University. She is a passionate advocate for positive social change with a focus on program implementation, policy work, and fostering partnerships to serve the most vulnerable populations. Kameron looks forward to building on THN’s 25+ year history, challenging us all to work together to step out of our comfort zones and thoroughly examine our strategies and programs, and to consider taking some risks in order to end homelessness in the BoS.
Prior to recently moving into his new position as President & CEO of THN, Eric Samuels spent the past 10 years managing and directing the Balance of State CoC. “I’m happy to be passing the baton to someone who shares my dedication and experience of serving those experiencing homelessness. Kameron’s direct experience, combined with her knowledge of CoC planning, will serve the Balance of State and all of Texas well,” said Eric.
Texas Homeless Network (THN), based in Austin, is a 501(c)3 organization that is the lead for the 216 counties located in the Balance of State Continuum of Care (CoC). THN provides training and technical assistance around the state on best practices to end homelessness. For additional information, visit: www.thn.org or call us at 512-482-8270.
