STREET OUTREACH COORDINATOR
Jeffrey is a M2 who was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. He graduated from UCLA in 2019 with a BS in molecular, cell and developmental biology and a minor in applied developmental psychology, Jeffrey later received a MS from Drexel in 2022. During his time in Los Angeles, Jeffrey was involved in the UCLA Mobile Clinic Project for two years, an interdisciplinary, student-run health care outreach program that provided medical, social and legal services to homeless communities in West LA and Santa Monica. During his gap years, Jeffrey worked for two years on Skid Row, which has the largest stable unhoused population in the entire United States. He chose to join HOP because of these experiences, as he empathizes with disenfranchised and underserved communities that experience a lack of available resources. It is Jeffrey’s core belief that all people should be provided with equal opportunities to basic human rights such as housing, food and health care.
