Before that, he consulted for the Alameda County Interagency Children’s Policy Council and the Alameda County Early Care and Education Planning Council. As a Coro Fellow in Public Affairs, Tim also facilitated a youth-led project to publicize the issues that commonly challenge children with incarcerated parents, and as a consultant for the Thomas & Jeanne Elmezzi Foundation he wrote a needs and asset report for the communities of Long Island City and Astoria.
