On October 1st our Director of Operations Mrs. Shawn Clark stepped into the position of Executive Director for 1Matters and Veterans Matter.

For the past seven years, Shawn has built out our critical programs, working directly with the founder and with many of you, to help bring safe, permanent housing to 5,184 veterans and their families, organize successful Tent City’s, and execute many successful fundraising events. Tent City will continue this year as planned to again unite the community in compassion.

An Army veteran, Shawn was taught in the military to never leave your fellow soldiers behind and working to house veterans is her way of not leaving brothers and sisters behind. We are grateful for her stewardship and know both programs will continue to flourish with the support of each and every one of you.
