LaMont Green (he, him, his) has nearly 20 years of experience helping local communities and governments identify and dismantle the persistent drivers of inequity in human services, homelessness, housing, behavioral health, and criminal justice systems. He has led several community-driven initiatives centered on improving systems of care for complex health and historically disenfranchised populations. Dr. Green also brings expertise in Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) homelessness programs, human-centered design, continuous quality improvement, and implementation science. He is a nationally recognized racial equity leader and has spoken at numerous conferences to inspire action towards undoing institutional racism and other forms of oppression. He received his Doctorate of Social Work from the University of Southern California with a focus on harnessing social innovation to address the Grand Challenge of Achieving Equal Opportunity and Justice for All.
Prior to joining TAC, Dr. Green worked as the Special Initiatives Director for the Seattle-King County (WA) Continuum of Care. He led this community’s implementation of the Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program, which resulted in significantly fewer unaccompanied youth experiencing unsheltered homelessness and advanced young adult participation in governing, designing, and evaluating housing and supportive services.
