Leadership Team

Over 170 people, drawn from all walks of life, are employed by Columbus House. More than a few have been recipients of our services and bring a special sensitivity to our work. We are a close-knit community, and our success is a reflection on our exceptional staff that works together every day toward shared goals of one day ending homelessness as we know it.
