Janeth Juarez – Fair Housing Specialist

Janeth has been with DMFHC since August 2018.  Her experience includes non-profit work in California as a Case Manager/Patient Navigator, advocating for the under-served, elderly, and those affected by substance use.  In Colorado, she has worked as an Addictions Counselor for a Primary Care Clinic that served the HIV/AIDS community. There, she screened for substance use and referred patients to treatment.  Her most recent role was as Family and Student Engagement Coordinator for a charter school in Aurora, CO, where she worked alongside teachers and parents in engagement, education, outreach and advocacy to better the education system in Aurora. Janeth’s new challenge is working with DMFHC to end housing discrimination in Colorado.

Victoria Garrick - Fair Housing Intake Specialist

DMFHC was fortunate to have Victoria join the center in July of 2019. She brings with her a diversified portfolio of experience, having worked on policy at both the state and city levels, focusing on human and civil rights. She earned her Masters of Social Work degree from the University of Denver in 2017, and since that time, has continued working for change at both the policy and community mental health levels. During her career she has witnessed the trauma that our system often perpetuates, and upon learning of the opening at DMFHC, the position was the logical next step. She operates from a trauma informed lens, with a desire to provide opportunities for narrative and self-advocacy, and a passion for dismantling the discriminatory practices that still exist within our systems.

Carrie Simpson - Test Coordinator

Carrie joins DMFHC after years of fair housing work with South Suburban Housing Center, a fair housing enforcement and HUD-approved counseling agency in suburban Chicago. Fair housing has proven to be a core and pervasive piece to obtaining equity and creating opportunity for previously marginalized and neglected communities and individuals and she considers herself  honored to be an advocate for the advancement of civil rights protections. Carrie is eager to work in a position that combines her professional experience and academic credentials to make an impact on fair housing  in the Denver metropolitan area.
