NEW Welcomes Christina Kane to the Board

KANE christinaJoin 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.”

It’s been a challenging time for all of us as we adjust our days, our budgets and our expectations to COVID-19. And now, add a city and country grasping for footing after the death of an unarmed black man by a white police officer and we all feel even more out of control, unstable, and concerned about the future. Here at NEW we know that one way we can process our own feelings is to think about the needs and feelings of others.

We need you. The women need you. Your community needs you. Now more than ever women and children in DC need a safe and stable place to live.
