Director and Chair of Committee
I believe that Hope Street is doing a fantastic job for young people and their families. I want to be part of expanding and improving our services and those of the homelessness systems for young people everywhere.
I believe all people have a right to a safe place to call home. I feel fortunate to work with an organisation that is taking an active, human-centred and innovative approach to address this goal. Through my Board Director role at Hope Street, it is a privilege to be part of the community of Hope Street management, staff, volunteers and partners who are dedicated to supporting young people facing hardship to find a safe and supportive home.
