Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans names Christine Lewis as executive director

Christine joins MSHV bringing over 16 years of experience in leading established non-profit organizations. Most recently, Christine served as the Executive Director at an assignment for Second City Canine Rescue and, prior to that, Recovery International. While at Recovery International, Christine spearheaded an initiative advocating improved mental health services for veterans.

“We could not be more excited to have Christine as our new Executive Director," said Tom Fogerty, MSHV board president.  "Her depth of experience and passion for serving homeless veterans will bring the vision needed to lead MSHV through our next phase of growth," added Fogerty.  

Christine comes from a family with a history of military service so knows well the sacrifices made each day by the men and women in the armed forces. “I am honored to be able to use my experience to bring assistance to those veterans who find themselves in need,” stated Christine. “I am fully committed to MSHV and our goal of ensuring that no homeless veteran is left behind. I look forward to working with our partners, the community and our clients to bring an end to veteran homelessness.”
