Name & Position Title

Tamaira M. Johnson, HR Manager


What is your interest in affordable housing/homelessness services?  Why do you feel the work HNH does is important?

I believe that everyone should have a place to call home and life is about service and sacrifice.  HNH does important work because we seek to reach individuals where they are by providing outreach services and support. We move people from homelessness to home by creating homes for our homeless families and building homes to accommodate a permanent supportive housing environment. We realize that we can't help everyone and this is not a forced environment.

    1. It's the City of Medicine, a major healthcare industry.
