A Moment to Reflect
With Easter approaching, this Holy Week is a time for many of us to pause and reflect. I’m reminded of, perhaps, my very favorite quote…
Today it is fashionable to talk about the poor. Unfortunately, it is not fashionable to talk with them. – Mother Teresa
In September 2008 I became the Executive Director of the Men's Shelter of Charlotte. I've spent almost 15 years working to end homelessness in North Carolina. After working with homeless and runaway youth in Raleigh, I served as the Director of the South Wilmington Street Center (men's shelter) in Wake County and then worked on Orange County's 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness. I am a former board chair for the North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness and former chair of the Homeless Services Network in Charlotte. In 2014 I served as the partner agency representative on the United Way Central Carolinas board of directors.
