The Family Conservancy Names New Vice President of Innovation and Programs

The Family Conservancy has been diligently working to fill this executive leadership role since naming the previous vice president of programs, Paula Neth, to the role of president and CEO in January. After a four-month, rigorous search and intensive vetting process, TFC is proud to announce that Jeannine Short will join the agency on May 18 as vice president of innovation and programs. 

For the past 20 years, Jeannine has developed and implemented housing programs and services for families experiencing homelessness. In her most recent role, her core responsibility was to ensure that all programs and services were relevant, streamlined, functioned according to best practices, and operated accordingly with Federal mandates and protocols. In addition, she worked closely with the board of directors by providing monthly program updates, facilitating educational opportunities around homelessness, creating and facilitating major donor presentations, and representing the agency on various community-facing committees and workgroups.

“My objective is to apply my knowledge, skills and experience in a way  that not only impacts individuals, but under-resourced communities as a whole. I am confident that The Family Conservancy will afford me this opportunity,” commented Ms. Short. 

Jeannine will oversee program development and operations, supervise the agency’s directors and programs, and lead The Family Conservancy’s culture of innovation. 

“The Family Conservancy is eager to draw from Jeannine’s vast experience working with under-resourced communities. Her track record for innovation, community partnerships, and program growth is a perfect fit for The Family Conservancy and its mission,” commented Neth.
