Southeast CT Community Impact Coordinator
David Gonzalez Rice comes to CCEH from the New London Homeless Hospitality Center, where he developed a supportive housing program and supervised coordinated intake and street outreach staff. While at NLHHC, he also supplied key leadership to regional efforts to end chronic homelessness.
A former educator and researcher, David holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from Duke University. His research focused on grassroots social justice movements, and in school he worked as a community organizer and international human rights observer. In 2013, seeking a more direct role in service to those most in need, David transitioned from academia to human services.
At CCEH, David serves the Southeast CT Coordinated Access Network, where he facilitates inter-agency collaboration toward the goal of ending all forms of homelessness.
