Hailee Hernandez

SDG #1: No Poverty

A first-generation Mexican and Native American, Hailee's work in homeless services began, assisting operate Homeless Court and monthly birthday parties. In 2019 as Program Improvement Specialist at the Gail Miller Homeless Resource Center (GMRC), she trained 40+ new employees on new Trauma-Informed program policies and procedures that have since been adopted and executed at all Salt Lake County Shelters. Hailee is the first to report homelessness trends and needs in rural Utah, implementing community support meetings for Summit and Wasatch Counties' unsheltered neighbors.
