2/25 Lunch n Lecture with Holly LeMasurier
February 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Lunch and presentation with Director of Homeward 2020.
Homeward 2020 is a collaborative, strategic think-tank guiding implementation of Fort Collins’ 10-Year Plan to Make Homelessness Rare, Short-Lived and Non-Recurring by setting priorities, developing alignment and action plans, and suggesting policy. Together, we are making progress by using best practices and strengthening coordinated responses to end homelessness.
Holly LeMasurier brings experience from twenty-plus years of facilitating diverse, collaborative, strategic social impact projects that achieve results. She focuses on three intersecting approaches to driving initiatives: Community Capacity-Building & Empowerment, Place-Based Asset Development, and Co-Creating Opportunity Agendas.
Holly joins Homeward 2020 after most recently serving as project manager of a volunteer-based community project, Safe Place to Rest, developing community-based overnight shelter options for people experiencing homelessness. She was formerly the City of Eugene, Oregon Human Rights Analyst, and an adjunct faculty of the University of Oregon. Holly obtained Masters degrees from the University of Oregon in Community and Regional Planning, and in International Studies, both with a focus on social policy and community development. She also completed Human Rights law courses at the University of Oregon School of Law. As an Amnesty International Human Rights Fellow, a Fulbright-Hays recipient in Ghana, and Peace Corps volunteer in Namibia, Holly developed a broad worldview and grassroots experiences as inspiration to drive place-based empowerment initiatives.
