We are delighted to welcome Kate Griffith, a licensed clinical social worker, to our staff as the new Shelter Services Manager. Kate brings a wealth of experience to her new role at HHC. Earlier in her career she managed the domestic violence shelter operated by Safe Futures (formerly the Women's Center). Most recently she has worked as a clinician at the Waterford Country School.
Kate is excited to be joining the team at HHC, and is looking forward to working with guests, providing essential support for our hardworking staff, and building up partnerships in the community to look for long term solutions to the challenges that contribute to homelessness.
Kate has always had a heart for helping people who are struggling with homelessness and other associated challenges. She takes great inspiration from the Catholic Worker movement and it's founder, Dorothy Day, who once said that "the biggest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution that has to start with each one of us."
It's an honor to have Kate with us in this incredibly important work! Welcome aboard!
