Kellie Glenn came to Covenant House in 2012 after working as a Social Worker for several years with youth who suffered from emotional behavior disorders and adults who lived with developmental disabilities. It was her passion for youth and those experiencing homelessness that led her to Covenant House, which was a natural fit. She served as the Volunteer Coordinator, Development Coordinator, and now after working 16 years in non-profit she is the Director of Development.
Kellie is often reunited with youth entering our shelter after aging out of Foster Care who were once on her caseload. "It is such a joy seeing youth I worked with when they were young. Though it is sad they find themselves on the streets after aging out, I'm thrilled they find themselves at Covenant House so they can have the encouragement and services needed to successfully transition to adulthood," Kellie states. Though she enjoyed direct care services, Kellie loves knowing that her efforts in fundraising and building relationships makes a difference by increasing the amount of youth we serve each year and furthering the critical services this population so desperately needs.
