Housing First Employee Honored by Arizona Housing Coalition for Work with Houseless Individuals

Allison Chappell, a member of the Housing First team, was recognized for her work with helping homeless individuals in the City of Tucson.

The Arizona Housing Coalition named her the recipient of the Kevin Collins Award for Excellence in Direct Service. The award is given to direct service employees "who go above and beyond to get clients housed."

Allison manages the Wildcat Inn and No-Tel Motel, both on North Oracle Road, two of four City-operated shelters for individuals and families in need of long-term shelter. In her capacity, she attends to the immediate needs of people who come off the street and move into the no-barrier shelters.

"Allison has been a leader in the implementation of the first-ever City operated shelters and the outreach to unsheltered individuals and families needing shelter," said Brandi Champion, director of Tucson's Housing First.
