Tara Twigg, Inside Indiana Business, November 9, 2018

Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention has named Chelsea Haring-Cozzi executive director. She will officially assume her duties on November 26 and will succeed Alan Witchey.

Haring-Cozzi most recently served as senior manager of strategic initiatives at United Way of Central Indiana, where she focuses on housing issues and supportive services. She was chosen following three months of interviews with more than 60 applicants by the CHIP board of directors.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to help lead and support our community as we work together to end homelessness and to create a true continuum of care. I join the CHIP team at an exciting yet pivotal time, as our community launches the five-year Indianapolis Community Plan to End Homelessness. The plan is ambitious and inclusive in a way that, I hope, inspires and empowers us to come together in new, creative, and collaborative ways to end and prevent homelessness. I am eager to continue to build relationships, to facilitate cross-sector partnerships, and to implement systemic solutions to homelessness and housing instability in our city, ” said Haring-Cozzi.

She holds a master’s degree in public administration and a Ph.D. in public policy and political science from Michigan State University.
