Congratulations to Tiffany Dumas and Mia Dixon as they take on new roles at the IRC!
After more than 5 years at the IRC, Tiffany Dumas is literally taking her work to the streets! Tiffany is now the Peer Support Specialist for the IRC’s Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness (PATH) team. This 4 member team provides street outreach and services to people with serious mental illness, including those with co-occurring substance use disorders, who are experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. Tiffany’s ability to build relationships and trust will be critical to the success of the PATH team.
If you haven’t yet met Mia Dixon, you will soon. Mia has taken on Tiffany’s former role as Day Room Coordinator. Mia has been working as a part- time Weekend Coordinator with the IRC for several months. For the past 6 years, Mia has worked as both a resident monitor and supervisor at Dismas Charities, a community based adult re-entry program. Her years spent working with those who have been formerly incarcerated and experience in addressing the barriers they face is a huge asset to the IRC.
