United Way of Monroe County and the Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County welcome Mary Morgan as the Director of Housing Security. Morgan will head a developing initiative to make housing more secure and homelessness rare, brief, and nonrepeating in Monroe County and its surrounding region. In this role, Morgan will lead the community in the implementation and execution of the long-range “Heading Home 2021 Plan” and its many facets.
Morgan brings more than two decades of experience in civic engagement and communications, working as a journalist in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and in leadership roles in the nonprofit sector. Most recently, she served as the Director of Advocacy and Public Policy for the Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce, a member of the Monroe County Affordable Housing Advisory Commission and on the boards of the Bloomington Urban Enterprise Association and United Way of Monroe County.
“Mary’s effectiveness in advocacy and nonprofit leadership, as well as her ability to convene diverse groups of stakeholders around tough community issues, made her an ideal candidate to spearhead the work ahead,” shared United Way of Monroe County Executive Director Efrat Feferman. “We are excited to welcome her to this role. Her unique set of skills, experience, and personal investment in the mission will help assure our community is heading in the right direction.”
Beginning December 13, Morgan can be contacted at (812) 334-8370 or firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about the Housing Security Coalition can be found at www.monroeunitedway.org/housing.
The Heading Home 2021 Plan was developed by a working group of stakeholders convened by United Way and the Community Foundation, with support from the South Central Housing Network, City of Bloomington, Monroe County Government, and the townships of Perry and Bloomington. The Plan identifies goals, strategies, and objectives to increase housing security by preventing homelessness in the first place, ensuring that if homelessness occurs it has a short tenure, and that it does not occur again.
