Jim Lindenmayer, the director of the Cherokee County Homeless Veterans Program, has been appointed to the State Housing Trust Fund for the Homeless Commission.

Lindenmayer was one of 45 appointments Gov. Brian Kemp named to various board and commissions Thursday.

The State Housing Trust Fund for the Homeless supports organizations that provide housing and services for individuals and families striving to end their state of homelessness, according to the board website. Some of the groups the board supports includes non-profits, faith-based organizations, community homeless provider networks, and public programs. The board provides resources, helps promote self-sufficiency, and partners with organizations that aim to end homelessness in Georgia.

Lindenmayer will join Alison Godley, Sandra Hudson, William C. McGahan, Mara Shaw, and Ryan Willoughby, who were all reappointed to the board, as well as the newly appointed Garland Hunt.

Lindenmayer is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point. In his career, he has served as a senior account manager for several firms, most recently with HCL Technologies. He has over 25 years of information technology experience in the manufacturing sector and has been an integral part of company success in his working years. In retirement, he leads the Cherokee Homeless Vets Program, which combats veteran housing issues by marshaling resources from federal and local government and has recently implemented programs to aid low-income veterans before they get to the point of homelessness. Earlier this year, he was named the First Citizen of Cherokee County by the Cherokee Chamber of Commerce.
