Liam Hudson began his career in Trauma Informed Care as a case manager in Washington, D.C., where he worked with individuals who were dually-diagnosed with Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders to find and maintain supportive housing. In this role he developed a deep belief in the intersectionality of trauma and health outcomes.
After getting his Trauma Informed Care certification, he went on to obtain a training certification in Public Policy and Cultural Reform Training from Harvard. Liam then joined the Continuum of Care (CoC) coalition in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and served as Rental Assistance Coordinator managing multiple Permanent Supportive Housing programs. This role proved the importance of housing in overall wellbeing and the ability of individuals to overcome trauma.
Now Liam is back in his hometown of Halifax, Virginia, as the Southside Planning District #13 CoC Coordinator and is perusing his Master’s of Science in Health Management and Policy. As the local CoC Coordinator, Liam hopes to share his Trauma Informed Care, housing, and disparities knowledge to be a part of developing equitable, community driven services.
