Lauren Silverstone

Lauren Silverstone brings more than 10 years of social services experience to MIH. A native Marylander, she has a B.A. in Psychology from UMBC and a M.A. in Human Sciences from Hood College.

Her interest in housing began when she served as a Residential Coordinator at Interfaith Works. She saw how the lack of affordable housing, in addition to medical conditions, resulted in unsuitable housing situations. She moved into a Service Coordinator role, which provided her with practical application and knowledge in case management.

Lauren was previously employed by The Coordinating Center, contracted through Montgomery County’s Department of Health and Human Services Housing Initiative Program. She provided case management services to individuals with chronic medical conditions who were experiencing homelessness. She was responsible for assisting individuals to obtain and maintain accessible housing and helping them navigate rental subsidies, social service programs, and community resources to address their needs. This experience was integral in helping her develop the skills to find appropriate housing for every individual she served. 

Along with serving individuals in the community, Lauren is passionate about animal rescue and pet adoption. She also enjoys reading, theatre, and attending concerts.
