To all of the friends of Stockton Shelter for the Homeless…

It is with a heavy heart, but also with a great sense of accomplishment, that I announce my resignation as Chief Executive Officer of Stockton Shelter for the Homeless.  It has been an immense pleasure getting to know this incredible community of supporters of the Shelter’s mission and vision.  I will always look back upon my time at the Shelter with fondness and cherish the experience.  THANK YOU ALL for your support and friendship over these years, and for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of so many in this community struggling with extreme poverty.  I am so proud of the progress we have made together since September of 2014, and proud that I leave for my successor an organization stronger than I found it.  Your continued support of the Shelter and its Board of Directors will be critical to the future success of the organization, as it has been for more than thirty years.

In my new position as San Joaquin County’s Program Administrator for Homeless Initiatives, I am so excited to continue the work I began at the Shelter, and to work more closely with everyone committed to fighting homelessness in our community.  That will include supporting Stockton Shelter for the Homeless, which brings me great comfort as I leave behind the staff that I have come to love and respect so much!

So as I move on to this new challenge in my career, it is my sincere hope that I can continue to serve the mission of the organization.  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of the story of Stockton Shelter for the Homeless!
