Broward County Homeless Advocate Dr. Kenisha Bryant Joins Florida Justice Center Board of Directors
Respected housing specialist brings expertise in residential placement for at-risk individuals to social justice nonprofit organization.
Dr. Bryant is currently employed by the Broward County's Community Partnership Division as the Project Program Coordinator for the Homeless Continuum of Care Coordinated Entry Assessment Housing Placement (CEAHP) initiative. In that capacity, Dr. Bryant plans, implements, and evaluates homeless services throughout Broward County. Dr. Bryant has previously worked with Broward Behavioral Health Coalition, City of Pompano Beach, Broward County Housing Authority, Florida Department of Children and Families, and Miami Rescue Missions/Broward Outreach Centers.
"Having been raised by a single mother and understanding that at any moment we could have been living on the streets, my passion for helping disadvantage members of my community started at an early age," explained Dr. Bryant.
On the way to becoming an authority on homelessness in Broward County, Dr. Bryant earned a Doctorate in Education in Organizational Leadership from Nova Southeastern University (NSU), a Master's in Public Administration also from NSU, and a Bachelor of Science in Public Relations from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (Florida A&M).
"Dr. Bryant is a prominent member of the housing community and all of us are ecstatic to have her personally work on projects. Her skill as an Individual Placement and Support (IPS) Trainer for vocational rehabilitation is invaluable to the FLJC," Executive Director Jonathan Bleiweiss said.
Some of Dr. Bryant's career achievements include collaborating with Broward County's Managing Entity to direct discharges from state mental health treatment facilities to stable housing in the community and facilitating the closure of a homeless encampment that involved the placement of over 80 individuals and families in permanent supportive housing.
"No one should be experiencing homelessness in Broward County, by choice" she declared, "No one."
The Florida Justice Center is proud to welcome Dr. Kenisha Bryant to its board of directors.
