Yesterday, I received incredible news from Opal Jones, President and CEO that the Board of Directors of DOORWAYS unanimously voted me in for a three-year term starting Sept. 2019 – 2022. Joining the Board provides me with an exciting opportunity to give back to the St. Louis region and to work toward a mission dear to my heart. I will chair the Advocacy Committee and will lead efforts to ensure DOORWAYS has a voice at the table when policy may impact the clients they serve.
DOORWAYS is an interfaith organization whose sole mission is to provide affordable, secure housing and related services for people living with HIV/AIDS.
