“Jean-Michel Giraud is the Executive Director of Friendship Place in Washington, DC. Since joining the organization in 2006, he has drawn on his 25 years of clinical experience in human services, his training in psychiatric rehabilitation, his expertise in recovery, and his commitment to person-centered programming to pioneer innovative program models that have moved DC’s entire homeless services system forward. In 2009 he was named to the DC Interagency Council on Homelessness and the board of the Coalition of Housing and Homeless Organizations, and in 2010 he received the Meyer Foundation Exponent Award for visionary nonprofit leadership.
Giraud’s focus on cost-effective, permanent solutions to homelessness has been lauded by the DC government, the DC VA Medical Center, and homeless service advocates.
