Our Staff

Between one-on-one assessments with each resident (and potential resident) to helping someone carry a laundry basket to the washing machines, our staff consists of dedicated, caring, and knowledgeable individuals. Let us introduce:

John Schmidt


After graduating from Florida State University in 1977, John began a 30 year career with the Leon County Sheriff’s Office and then spent several years in commercial real estate development and management. As the Director of The Dwellings, he is most thankful to be able to see the smiles on the faces of residents every day. He and his wife, Diane, have been married for nearly 30 years, have three grown children and two grandchildren.

Trevor Reinhardt

Deputy Director

Trevor Reinhardt graduated from Florida State University with a double major in Psychology and Sociology. While in school, he started working for CESC at The Kearney Center as a case manager. He takes pride in working one-on-one with clients to help them achieve stable housing and financial independence. His work continues by helping protect and growing residents at The Dwellings.

Micha Allen

Case Manager

Coming from Orlando to Tallahassee for school, Micha Allen graduated with a major in Social Work and a minor in business. While in school she became passionate about homelessness and affordable housing. Finding herself wanting to stay and work with the people in the surrounding community, she decided to intern and eventually work for the Kearney Center as a case manager. She continues her work with social services and the community here at The Dwellings as their case manager. Her goal is to increase the unity, success, and availability of resources for the members of the community.”
