Austin Monitor Radio: ECHO’s Matthew Mollica
Earlier this month, Matthew Mollica stepped into his new post as executive director for the Ending Community Homelessness Coalition. On this edition of Austin Monitor Radio, he talks to Monitor reporter Jessi Devenyns about the timing of that move, how Austin compares to other cities he’s worked in, what it will take to end homelessness in Austin, and what his future plans are for ECHO.
