Welcome to Accessible Housing Matters!
In today’s episode, I welcome Jennifer Duffy.
Jennifer brings 20 years of experience pioneering new models of housing and service delivery for individuals and working families across the socioeconomic spectrum. Designing and implementing new programs is a strength and a passion that Jennifer brings to her work. She has helped Bay Area cities and counties craft new approaches to maintain and protect existing affordable housing stock during the economic downturn while also designing anti-blight and anti-displacement strategies through innovative public-private partnerships with mission-oriented companies.  Throughout her career, Jennifer has researched and disseminated effective management and service technologies to assist people with developmental disabilities, physical limitations, and other challenging conditions associated with housing access issues to find their way home.  Jennifer earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Education and a Master of Social Welfare degree from the University of Kansas and is a licensed Real Estate Broker in the State of California.
