Seth Diamond '88 becomes New York City's new homeless services commissioner

On April 26, Seth Diamond '88 took over as the Department of Homeless Services commissioner for New York City. Diamond moved to the new role from the Human Resources Administration, where he was an executive deputy commissioner of the Family Independence Administration (FIA) overseeing the administration of the City's Cash Assistance and Food Stamps programs and directing the nation's largest welfare reform program. Diamond played a lead role in helping New York City place more than 75,000 cash assistance clients in jobs last year, in the midst of a national recession.

"Seth's experience directing the nation's largest welfare reform program makes him a great choice to lead the Department of Homeless Services," said Mayor Michael Bloomberg in a statement. "Seth's contributions have made the lives of thousands of New Yorkers better. We are fortunate to now have him as the Commissioner for Homeless Services and as one of the next generation of leaders in this administration."
