Meet Shane Mulhern, Thrive DC's New Executive Director!

On behalf of Thrive DC’s Board of Directors, we are thrilled to announce Shane Santo Martinez Mulhern as Thrive DC's new Executive Director!

Shane brings over 25 years of experience in education, policy, and nonprofit executive leadership. As an agile and dynamic educator, Shane has broad experience providing hands-on leadership and program development for public and private organizations.

When our Executive Director, Alicia Horton, departed last year, the Board of Directors named a Board and staff-powered search committee. It engaged LeaderFit, a national executive search firm for mission-driven organizations, to conduct a search. Shane was selected from among a pool of outstanding candidates following a rigorous six-month search for our new leader.

Please join us in welcoming Shane to Thrive DC and supporting him as he leads the organization through our next phase of impact.

Homelessness in DC

Milton's Story

A long-time resident of DC, Milton lacked housing and employment, and was dealing with an injury that left him unable to walk. When he finally found Thrive DC, he found a place to begin his journey to self-sufficiency and independence. He now has stable housing and volunteers weekly at our food pantry!

There are over 4,400 people without housing in our city right now, who need a second chance just like Milton.
"Thrive DC is a place for healing and transformation. A place to create and meet new friends. A place to get a home cooked meal to start my day’s work. Thrive DC is the best in the city!"

Make an Impact

Help us support people experiencing housing instability, food insecurity, and economic crisis on their journey to greater self-sufficiency.
