Staff Members

Carpenter’s team consists program staff who work directly with shelter clients to guide them on the path out of homelessness and administrative staff who manage the organization’s financials, oversee the facility and lead fundraising efforts. In addition to the support from over 1,200 volunteers, our staff works to implement our vision of a community where all can live in permanent, affordable housing.
