In 1997, I was hired at Shalom House as a House Manager/Supported Housing Worker at a few of the agency’s supported housing programs. Over the past 20 plus years at Shalom as I moved from Property Manager to Housing Director and now Deputy Director, I developed a great relationship with Amistad and its staff. Amistad has been there for so many of our clients, forming lasting friendships and connections to the community. I admire how Amistad and its staff have welcomed all who have come to its doors for nearly four decades and continue to meet them where they are and connect them to the resources they need. I am honored to now be a part of the agency and excited to be involved in the important work Amistad does into the future.
