Carolyn Gordon serves as the Northeast Regional Director. Carolyn first started with Family Promise serving as the Executive Director of the Northern New Castle County affiliate in Wilmington, Delaware for 7+ years. She has a Master of Social Work from the State University of New York (Albany) and B.A in Psychology from Boston University. She was born and raised in upstate New York, lived for a few years outside of Boston and now calls Delaware home.
Carolyn loves that the Family Promise model effectively engages the entire community through volunteerism while also effectively preventing and ending family homelessness. Prior to working with Family Promise, she worked with social enterprises and micro-business for youth aging out of foster care. She enjoys bringing her social work background and entrepreneurial spirit to the Family Promise movement. When not helping others leverage their gifts and talents, she can be found eating Indian food, at a concert, trying to be a minimalist or starting up some new hobby she really hopes she sticks with.
