Sue Marshall is the founding Executive Director of the Community Partnership for the Prevention of Homelessness, a nonprofit public/private partnership in the District of Columbia. The Community Partnership leads the implementation of the "D.C. Initiative on Homelessness." It works with government, community members, homeless service providers and advocates.
Currently, the Community Partnership administers more than $60 million of publicly funded services to the homeless in the District of Columbia on an annual basis. Programs include rapid re-housing initiatives for individuals, families with children and youth aging out of foster care, rental and utility assistance programs, and emergency/transitional shelter.
The District of Columbia also developed the Community Care Grant Program model, which prevents family homelessness by providing permanent supportive housing to families at imminent risk of homelessness. The model is recognized as a national best practice by the National Alliance to End Homelessness.
Sue has provided technical assistance to the cities of New York, Philadelphia and Chicago in the areas of homeless continuum of care development and implementation, development of plans to end homelessness and replication of the District of Columbia's Community Care Grant Program. She has significant experience in providing technical assistance to nonprofit community based organizations in the areas of capacity building, organizational development and management and economic development. She is currently a member of the D.C. Interagency Council on Homelessness and several nonprofit Boards.
