Meet our panelists:


Jasmine Yohai is the lead Housing Locator at Bay Area Community Services and has been with the agency for three years. She has her M.A. in Psychology with a background in expressive arts therapy. Her career shifted when she recognized the dire need for housing solutions within the mental health sector. When clients are supported with a “housing first” model, as well as wrap-around supportive services, they are given an opportunity to empower themselves and create a new life. Housing is a human right and without addressing that need, it is impossible to create a lasting, positive change.
