Josh Spring graduated from the College of Social Work at Xavier University. Josh is a Licensed Social Worker. Previously, Josh was the Social Worker for Tenants of Over-the-Rhine Community Housing’s 250 units of affordable housing. Josh noticed that repeatedly Tenants or those that wanted to be Tenants were experiencing the same repeated issues. This built a desire to organize systematic efforts to take on the root causes of homelessness, leading Josh to the Coalition.
Josh began learning about homelessness from those who were homeless; while working in the transitional housing building of Tender Mercies, an agency providing affordable housing for people who have been homeless with mental illness.
