Carolyn Gordon 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, a few more in Delaware and now calls New Jersey home. Prior to working with Family Promise, she worked with social enterprises and micro-businesses for youth aging out of foster care. She enjoys bringing her social work background and entrepreneurial spirit to the Family Promise movement.
Carolyn Gordon serves as the Northeast Regional Director for Family Promise. Carolyn’s work with Family Promise began when she served as the Executive Director of the Northern New Castle County Affiliate in Wilmington, Delaware for 7+ years. She loves that the Family Promise model engages the community through volunteerism while also effectively preventing and ending family homelessness.
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 hopes will stick.
