Project Officer, Homelessness Partnering Strategy
Shauna joined Vancity in 2014 and is a member of the Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS) team, a community-based program aimed at preventing and reducing homelessness.
Prior to obtaining her Human Resources Management Diploma at the BCIT School of Business, Shauna spent seven years working for both the regional and provincial health services authorities in an administrative capacity. During this time, she gained a wealth of experience in contract management and developing strong working relationships with various funding partners. Further, she had the privilege of being in many client-facing roles, deepening her passion for working with organizations that support marginalized populations. It was during her time at a mental health rehabilitation unit that Shauna came to understand the unique challenges that people who experience mental illness face when it comes to finding and maintaining suitable housing. Feeling inclined to be part of the solution, she joined the team at the Vancity Community Foundation as a Project Officer with the Homelessness Partnering Strategy.
