Cosmo Xavier

Youth Peer Specialist

Cosmo Xavier is a 28 year old native of Indianapolis in her first role as the Support Specialist for the Youth Homelessness Demonstration Project. She brings a lot of lived experience as a person who is actively healing from her own issues with homelessness, poverty, addiction, and trauma at the hands of the state. She is an MHA Certified Recovery Specialist. Having experienced a lot of the issues that our clients face directly, she feels as thought it’s been a natural progression from being homeless to preventing homelessness.

When she isn’t working, you’re likely to find Cosmo reading (or writing) a book, playing RPGs on her PS4, and listening to music like it’s the only thing that matters.
