He began his career at MUTEH in 2010 as HMIS coordinator and quickly rose in the ranks to become Program Director in 2011, overseeing programs in MUTEH’s statewide coverage area. Parker became Executive Director in 2016 and has grown the organization from a small nonprofit of 3 employees to an ever-expanding team of 40, administering public and private grants to aid those in need. Additionally, Parker and his team have implemented data systems throughout the state to offer a more strategic and efficient approach to homeless service provision in MS.
