City of Los Angeles, Housing and Community Investment Department
Stanton Fellowship, 2016

Helmi Hisserich is the Assistant General Manager in the Housing and Community Investment Department of the City of Los Angeles. A former banker and Deputy Mayor who has worked in local government for over 20 years, Helmi has seen how multiple public agencies work on housing and homelessness but do not effectively pool their knowledge to move problem solving. She wants to shift the way that city departments working on housing and homelessness communicate with one another, elected officials, community and other partners by creating a platform for open access to information.
