VEAP is pleased to introduce the newest member of our staff! After a long search, we are excited to welcome Trisha Gilbert on board as the new Program Manager of our Social Services team.
Trisha comes to us with many years of experience in non-profit program management. Prior to VEAP, she worked for a decade with St. Stephen’s Human Services providing management support to a team working with single adults facing long-term homelessness and chemical dependency issues. She has also spent time serving at CAPI as an MFIP Program Manager. Trisha is looking forward to using her communication skills to guide and develop VEAP’s front-line social services staff. In her role, she will oversee social services department activities to enhance, integrate and create programming while leading and working alongside VEAP housing specialists and social workers. Trisha is a big people-person and loves working directly with the community.
When not at VEAP, Trisha likes spending time with her daughter and their two mini-bulldogs. She’s also a huge foodie and enjoys exploring new dishes—especially spicy ones!
Welcome Trisha to the team!
