Join us in welcoming Christina Kane to NEW’s Board of Directors. A fourth-generation Washingtonian, Christina practices real estate law, with experience in HUD insured real estate closings. She has past restaurant experience, loves cooking and the outdoors, and lives in the District of Columbia with her boyfriend and cat, Beans.
Christina says she was drawn to become a part of NEW’s family because of personal experience; a close family member suffers from mental illness and has experienced homelessness for many years in the past.
“I understand the devastating effect of homelessness and truly feel that this is a problem that touches everybody in the community,” she explains. “As a Board Member, I hope to raise awareness and understanding of the problem and its interconnectedness with mental illness, and to provide permanent housing to as many individuals as possible.”
