Elena joined the United Way of Denton staff as Coordinated Entry Specialist and HMIS Support in August 2019. Her role allows her to support the agencies of Denton County by participating in Coordinated Entry, a system-wide process to help people experiencing homelessness be connected to the best set of resources based on their needs and allocate assistance as effectively as possible in the area. She previously worked with homelessness services in Austin, TX and Phoenix, AZ after receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from St. Edwards University. Elena believes housing is a right everyone deserves and is passionate about any steps working towards making sure homelessness is rare, brief and nonrecurring.
