Please welcome Gary Hines, our newest addition to the Thrive DC family! Gary will work on the Development Team as our Grants Coordinator. We are thrilled to have him join!
Gary is native to Washington, DC and just moved back to the city from the Shenandoah Valley after living there for 9 years. With 30 years of experience in the non-profit world, Gary has experience in accounting and finance, development, operations, program administration, and more. His previous work in the District was at the Father McKenna Center and New Hope Ministries, both organizations working to support neighbors in crisis.
Gary has a passion for homeless services, which is what attracted him to Thrive DC. He is excited about the mission and how his work as Grants Coordinator will help accomplish it. We are thrilled to see how Gary's expertise in the field and hands-on experience with similar client populations will inform how he tells Thrive DC's story.
We asked Gary what his favorite breakfast meal is, and he answered: bacon, eggs over medium, wheat toast and grits.
