Founder & COO/CFO

Having a career in real estate management and development I realized a reoccurring trend that young people especially those living in big cities are not prepared for independence. This unpreparedness continues the narrative of generational homelessness and poverty. This idea although not universal throughout all youth, is still a harmful stereotype that young people face when searching for housing. With more than enough agencies providing supportive services, I thought, why not develop an organization focused on housing and using connections I have made in the real estate industry to assist young people find housing. It is my hope and aim to one day develop GoGRC into a leading organization that prioritizes housing for people with disabilities, Veterans and Resilient populations of young adults.

Executive Director

A healthy family and community is the cornerstone to living a fulfilled life. With a career in residential services as a direct care worker, case manager and director of multiple faith based and residential programs  I have a passion for helping young adults strive to be their best self.  Unfortunately, without having the safety and security of housing it makes it difficult for anyone to focus on setting and/or achieving positive growth and happiness. As a disciple of Jesus Christ I believe it is important to show Gods’ love by being a positive role model, worship through giving back and providing a service to others.
