About the Event
As Abode Services' leader for 25 years, Louis has helped the organization become the leading provider of housing and services to residents experiencing homelessness in Alameda, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, and Napa counties. During his tenure, Abode Services has grown from a local “start-up” with one shelter serving 66 adults and children into a regional organization that owns and operates hundreds of supportive housing units and provides services to more than 9,100 adults and children each year.
Abode Services develops and implements innovative programs to end homelessness. According to Abode, “Our agency is built on the principles of Housing First, a proven approach that has yielded far superior results than those of past strategies for ending homelessness. Our results show how effective our work has been at ending homelessness for vulnerable children and adults in our community.”
