St. Vincent de Paul Louisville is pleased to announce the reorganization of its Housing Department. The reorganization will incorporate changes that St. Vincent de Paul sees as necessary for it to provide services more holistically to those in most need.
“We see an opportunity to do what we do at a level that is even more responsive to the growing needs of our community,” explains Executive Director and CEO Dave Calzi. “This reorganization will build capacity to do what we’re already doing better and give us the capacity to grow.”
In light of these changes, our Housing Department will now report to our Chief Operating Officer, Jennifer Clark. A new position, Director of Housing and Services, has been created to oversee housing and programs departments. Three associate directors, one for housing case management, one for permanent housing, and one for crisis housing services, will report to the new Director of Housing and Services. Finally, a new position will be created to manage programs that are not housing related: The Family Success Center, Open Hand Kitchen, and the Food Pantry. This associate director will work closely with the Director of Volunteers and Conference Affairs.
“This new organizational structure streamlines operations, changes where decisions are made and takes advantage of where we already have added capacity,” shares COO Jennifer Clark. “We’re going to be better equipped to follow our mission to house, feed, and support those in need with compassion and dignity.”
