Our little team at HOM isn’t so little anymore. We’ve been fortunate to work with our community partners to expand permanent housing solutions to homelessness in Maricopa County in the past couple of years and have expanded our team as a result. You can find a directory of all of our team members and their areas of responsibility at http://www.hominc.com/hom-inc-team.html. Every team needs strong and effective leadership, and we’re excited to share with you some updates on our leadership team at HOM.
