Megan comes to the role with an extensive background in social services and journalism, as well as a long relationship with the agency.

“I first walked through the doors of the Community Warehouse in 2004 when I was a case manager with Transition Projects. I’ve been a champion of the mission ever since,” says Megan.

Megan went on to serve as a volunteer and board member, while working as a housing advocate at Neighborhood House and program coordinator at Bradley Angle. She also spent several years in Guadalajara, Mexico, where she was a reporter. Most recently, she has volunteered with the Welcome Home Coalition and Street Roots.

This is a very exciting time for Community Warehouse. We are poised to launch our next phase of growth through a Five Year Strategic Plan (2018-2022) and we are confident Megan will lead with great tenacity and heart.”
