Councilmember Nadeau is the Chair of the Committee on Human Services, which is responsible for matters concerning welfare, social services, youth affairs (other than juvenile justice), homelessness, and disability services.
When I became Chair of the Committee in 2017, I was determined to tackle pressing challenges, build consensus by listening to a diverse array of voices on each issue, and make progress to ensure District residents have the support they need in times of crisis.
One year later, I'm proud to report that my committee shepherded through three major new laws – reforming Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), homeless services, and disability services – that are helping to reshape our social services so that we provide better service.
