COO (COH), Co-Founder & VP (Hub Solutions)
Allyson is the Chief Operating Officer with the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness (previously the Canadian Homelessness Research Network) and the Homeless Hub. Allyson has a Master’s degree in Critical Disability Studies from York University and over 12 years experience working in the social justice field. Currently, Allyson is excited about further developing Hub Solutions (www.hubsolutions.ca), the COH’s social enterprise, which provides research, evaluation and knowledge mobilization support to the homelessness sector. She is also working towards a professional designation as a Project Management Professional (PMP). When she’s not working to make research matter and end homelessness, Allyson can be found answering “Why?” for the gazillionth time for her precocious daughter, Quinn!
