Alisa Chatinsky
Executive Director @The Sophia Way
I recently spent the past 18 months working with Arizona’s largest and oldest shelter. Central Arizona Shelter Services (CASS) houses 450 men and women 365 days a year. Just as The Sophia Way, CASS’ real success is helping individuals access the services to prepare them for a thoughtful transition to permanent housing. During my time with CASS, I learned the importance of having a staff committed to our clients’ success, an engaged board of directors and the financial resources necessary to make a significant impact to end homelessness. We have a lot of ambitious work ahead to prepare for a successful transition of The Sophia Way’s next permanent executive director. I hope you will continue to stand #WithHerForHer in our work to end homelessness in east King County.
