My Sister's Place has grown as an organization this year, and we are excited to share our most recent development:

We are pleased to announce that  starting April 23rd, 2018, Mercedes Lemp will join My Sister’s Place as its new Executive Director.  She is an accomplished, results-oriented executive with over 15 years of experience in government, association, non-profit, and for-profit organizations. Prior to joining MSP, Mercedes served as Director of the Mayor’s Office on Latino Affairs during Mayor Fenty’s administration, and as Executive Director of the Washington English Center. 
Mercedes’ strong work ethic, management skills, and deep interest in client service have made her successful in her past roles. Our Board of Directors feels that the combination of  Mercedes’ Executive Director experience, knowledge of DC government, fundraising history, and clear passion for our mission will lead to success for MSP.  Please join us in welcoming Mercedes as she steps into her new role with MSP. 

We invite you to read more about Mercedes and more exciting developments below. This month we welcomed Lisa Scaglione as our Community Program Supervisor, and the Community Foundation of Greater Washington awarded MSP $82,000 through Mayor Bowser's Safer Stronger DC Fund to support our Batterer Intervention group and RISE program. Lastly, we hope you will join us at Walk It Like You Talk It in May and the Tico Taco Takedown in June, which you can read about below.

We are excited to share this time of organizational growth with you, and look forward to continued success under the leadership of Mercedes Lemp.
