Diana Bowman served as director of the National Center for Homeless Education for 18 years, seeing the project through three successful federal competitions and overseeing its growth to a full-service technical assistance center. During this time, Diana provided over 150 presentations and developed over 75 documents and briefs related to serving homeless children and youth in schools. In 2016, Diana wrote The Charlie Book: 60 Ways to Help Homeless Kids, which compiles practical suggestions for how individuals can help children experiencing homelessness in their communities. In semi-retirement, while still working for SERVE, Diana carries her passion and commitment for serving vulnerable populations into her community work with children in foster care and in teaching at an online global university that offers free tuition to students, many of whom are immigrants and refugees. When kicking back, Diana continues to develop her skills as a watercolor painter and tap dancer.
