Colin Sorensen

Policy Analyst

Colin provides counties and communities with technical assistance and research around state and federal programs and grants, best practices for responding to homelessness, and systems for improving services and programs for clients. He is particularly interested using qualitative and quantitative data to evaluate programs and ensure that communities use their limited resources effectively. ​ Colin’s concern for homeless policy began while working as a teacher in New Orleans, where he saw countless students come to school every morning from shelters, cares, or temporary stays with family and friends. Despite their resilience, their lack of shelter was still evident in their daily interactions. Fueled by this experience, Colin is passionate about HomeBase’s cause of ending homelessness and preventing its reoccurrence, and remains excited to be a part of such a dynamic team. Colin holds a BA from the University of Colorado, an M.S.Ed. from the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education, and an MPA from the University of Pennsylvania Fels Institute of Government.
