LOS ANGELES — Mayor Eric Garcetti has appointed Christina Miller as Senior Project Manager for Homelessness Strategies, a key member of the team leading his administration’s response to the crisis of unsheltered homelessness.
“We are building 10,000 units of supportive housing to lift homeless Angelenos out of desperate situations for good — but we cannot lose sight of the fact that people living on the streets today need help now,” said Mayor Garcetti. “Christina has an exceptional track record of creating partnerships that quickly connect people to housing and services. She’s the right person to take on this challenge.”
Christina comes to the Mayor’s Office from Los Angeles World Airports, where she served as the consulting project manager on homelessness issues. There, she helped lead an interagency task force that successfully addressed a homeless encampment in Manchester Square, and connected 350 people with housing-focused services.
As Senior Project Manager for Homeless Strategies, Miller will supervise the successful development, coordination, execution, and completion of projects that respond to the needs of those experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles.
“I am thrilled to be joining the Mayor’s team and getting closer to the core of this movement to solve homelessness in Los Angeles,” said Miller. “We have an opportunity to build a City where no one calls the sidewalk their home — and it’s an honor to be part of a leadership team that is committed to real and lasting change.”
Miller previously worked at L.A. Family Housing, a low-income housing developer and service provider in the San Fernando Valley — where she brought to scale a community-wide housing system for people experiencing homelessness, and oversaw services that brought nearly 1,000 chronically homeless adults and veterans off the streets.
Miller is also a certified Rape Crisis Advocate. She received her Master’s Degree in Counseling from California State University Northridge, and her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from California State University Channel Islands.
