Meet Kimberly Marshall, Chief Program Officer

September 15, 2021

Kimberly Marshall, Chief Program OfficerKimberly Marshall is our Chief Program Officer. She joined the team in 2011 as program director for the West Harlem LGBTQ supportive housing site.

Now she oversees program development, implementation, and contract compliance for all programs including our transitional family shelter, older adult affordable housing, and LGBTQ young adult supportive housing.

She has a Master of Public Administration from John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Her criminal justice studies inform her professional experiences working in shelter services and affordable housing—formerly incarcerated individuals experience higher rates of homelessness.

Kimberly is passionate about reforming the criminal justice system as a matter of fairness and equity for marginalized communities. Her hobbies? Listening to music, gardening, and reading about and working on social justice issues.

She is deeply committed to the professional growth of the teams she supervises. She considers it one of the most rewarding parts of her work. But, she adds, “The greatest reward is knowing I assisted in providing housing for individuals in need.”

Thank you, Kimberly, for all that you do for the residents and staff of Homeward NYC!
