Jenna Gordon started working at HYC in January 2020. She comes to us with non-profit and social services experience. In addition, she has experience working with criminal justice agencies as an advocate. As a Case Manager, she is responsible for identifying and providing the basic needs and resources homeless youth need to stay in school, graduate and create a plan for their future. Her satisfaction comes from learning the students’ stories and helping them achieve their own goals in life. She understands the importance of being a positive role model. Her philosophy is about treating everyone with the kindness and respect they deserve. She also understands that change is a gradual process. “I do my best each and every day and if I don’t accomplish something today, I will try again tomorrow,” she says. In her leisure time, she enjoys spending quality time with her family and two dogs, listening to podcasts, watching tv and documentaries and exploring new places.
