DHS Director Laura Zeilinger on Affordable Housing
In a slight departure from our typical guests, we sit down with a policy maker. This is something we hope to do more and more. Laura Zeilinger has dedicated her professional career to working on behalf of low-income families who need access to better (and more) affordable housing. The former Executive Director of the US Interagency Council on the Homeless, Laura was chosen by Mayor Muriel Bowser in 2014 to oversee the Department of Human Services.
