Kudos: Terri Laver and Robert Eamigh

Terri Laver, grants writer and consultant for the Office of Community Service’s (OCS) Bureau of Homeless Services, and Robert Eamigh, DHS Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Program Administrator, received praise for their presentation at an annual HUD training webinar.

Rob and Terri did a PowerPoint presentation that included explaining how HUD Veterans Affairs Support Housing (VASH) vouchers can be used to help homeless veterans. It also covered means of linking veterans with other housing services resources.

The presentation was conducted for personnel from Continuums of Care, the VA, and public housing agencies.

Rose Jacobson, ?Community Planning and Development Representative at HUD’s Pittsburgh Office, lauded Terri and Rob in an email to DHS Director Marc Cherna, OCS Deputy Director Reginald Young and HUD Field Office Director John Tolbert. “Your expertise about the nature of homeless and the Continuum programs that serve the homeless is unsurpassed.  Your collaborative with the Veterans Administration and the Veterans Leadership Program is envied by many, equaled by no one!  Your Continuum has grown to be one of the finest that I know of – because of you,” Rose wrote.
