2021 QF Headshot
Ending Community Homelessness Coalition (ECHO)


Quiana attended the School of Social Work at the historic Texas Southern University where she began to develop a racial equity framework and a commitment to improving systems on behalf of people that looked like her. She received her MSW at University of Houston in 2008 with a desire to work at the intersection of systems improvement and culturally competent service delivery. Quiana began working in housing services in 2010 and soon after found her home in the Austin Homeless Response System. She has worked as a PSH case management and accredits her insight to the many program participants that trusted her with their authenticity and feedback. Quiana grounds her racial equity framework in the community organizing principles of The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond and continues to work to ensure that the homeless response system is accountable to the people that it is called to serves.
