In Memory of Lloyd Pendleton
It was with great sadness that the Alliance learned of the passing of Lloyd Pendleton, former Director of the Homeless Task Force for the State of Utah.
Lloyd was a tireless leader in the battle to end homelessness, in Utah and nationally. Under his leadership, Utah's chronic homelessness rate was reduced 91%. Though his work with the provider community, in the media, and on the speaker circuit (including many memorable sessions at Alliance events), Lloyd emerged as one of the nation's foremost advocates for a Housing First approach.
We offer our deepest sympathies to Lloyd's family and loved ones. As we consider his legacy, we take comfort in knowing that because of his work, so many people who would otherwise be homeless will spend tonight in housing. Lloyd was an inspiration to us all, and he will be deeply missed.
