SALT LAKE CITY — The city recently announced the appointment of Liz Buehler to the newly created position of Salt Lake City Homeless Services coordinator.

Buehler will work directly with law enforcement, social service providers, local businesses, faith-based organizations, and other internal and external agencies in city efforts to combat homelessness. She will also help oversee and review federally funded Emergency Shelter Grant projects, seek grant and other funding sources to help address issues and gather and assess data to inform and shape future strategies.

“Even having just stepped into this position, Liz is already making an impact in this critical area of work,” said Mayor Ralph Becker. “We have an overarching and ambitious goal of ending homelessness in Salt Lake City and the path there is one with many challenges. In this new position, Liz is tasked with bringing the relevant people and organizations together to find solutions and get these members of our community on the path to permanent housing and better lives.”

Buehler earned a Master of Science in Community and Regional Planning at the University of Texas. She has previously worked in municipal government in Portland and North Richland Hills, Texas, and, since 2010, as a principal planner for Salt Lake City.
