Meet Kari Galloway - Change Agent #0070 of our #SCN1000ChangeAgents Series.
Kari joined Guest House as Executive Director in 2005--and is credited with leading the organization's tremendous growth ever since. With over 25 years in social services and community advocacy, she brings an "outside the beltway" perspective as a former West Coast resident and small business owner. She is widely involved in the area's social-services community, for example: member, Continuums of Care (partnerships to end homelessness), Arlington and Alexandria; member, Governor's Regional Re-entry Committees in five Northern Virginia jurisdictions; member, Alexandria Council of Human Service Organizations and Alexandria Opioid Workgroup ; member, Statewide Recidivism Reduction Planning Team for Women in Virginia; former chair (2010-2012), Focus Area Committee on Women's Re-Entry, statewide Virginia Prisoner and Juvenile Re-Entry Council.
Kari has received numerous awards for her work but credits the women Guest House serves as the real recipients, for they are her inspiration. In addition to the outreach and administrative duties of an executive director, Kari has always been able—because Guest House is small—to involve herself directly with each client; and today, there are many who say that, without her dogged belief and active support, they would simply have given up (Without that support, said one, "I know that by now I’d be dead”). Education: M.A., Organizational Leadership, Gonzaga University.
The SC Nebula is a global online (and offline - Washington, DC area) hub where conscious leaders from corporate, spiritual, nonprofit and civic groups can connect, collaborate and create more social impact together.
