Working WITH our neighbors

Metanoia Staff

Metanoia has a full and permanent part-time staff of eleven. Of these, six live in our neighborhood. By choosing to live here staff are closer to the families in the community. And in turn we are better able to create the programs that citizens living in our community have true voice designing and helping to succeed. Our staff further reflects a sense of commitment to Metanoia’s Mission as over half the staff have worked here for more than 5 years.

Metanoia Board

Because Metanoia has a core belief that people who live in a community are the true experts on their neighborhood, our Board of Directors is made up of a majority of community residents.  This means that we come up with solutions for our community that address areas to focus on, have buy in from our citizens, and that capitalize on the assets of the community.

Metanoia Advocates

Metanoia’s Advocates are a dedicated group of supporters who work to ensure the success of our movement. The Advocates also help in building relationships beyond our neighborhood that generate different areas of support: donations, volunteers, prayers.  The Advocates are chaired by a Council of Advocates that sets a strategic direction for the larger group and sets annual fundraising goals. Advocates receive the same high level briefings as our Board of Directors enjoy the relationships that are built through various Advocate events and meetings.
