YCES Peer Navigatior

Erika is thrilled to join the Safe Place for Youth team as the Youth Coordinated Entry System Peer Navigator. Erika has been a member at SPY for a little over a year and has participated in education/employment, case management as well as the arts and healing programs. Erika has a passion for helping others. In her new role, Erika hopes to help homeless youth find housing and provide them with anything they need to make them feel safe again. Erika’s background as a formerly homeless youth and as an ongoing youth advocate nationally and locally makes her an excellent fit for this role. Erika loves volunteering and speaking to groups of people about the common issues faced by homeless youth. Erika is excited to learn more about what the position has in store and the great things that will come out of this experience. Contact Erika.
