The Board of Directors for Georgetown Ministry Center (GMC) is pleased and excited to welcome Lissa Ramsepaul as its new Executive Director! Ms. Ramsepaul succeeds Gunther Stern who is retiring from the position after a remarkable twenty-seven years of dedicated service to the homeless and the community. Mr. Stern plans to remain involved in and supportive of GMC’s mission.
Ms. Ramsepaul brings demonstrated experience in both the non-profit and educational sectors to GMC. She received her Master’s in Social Work from The Catholic University of America where she is currently earning her PhD in Social Work. She possesses over 22 years of experience in the nonprofit sector, spanning roles from a crisis counselor to leadership positions in management and agency oversight. She currently teaches in both social work and psychology programs at several area universities.
In her role as Executive Director, Ms. Ramsepaul will oversee all aspects of the organization’s operations, finances and personnel while working closely with GMC’s Board of Directors to further the organization’s mission to guide service-resistant, chronically homeless individuals towards stability and housing.
In selecting her for the Executive Director position, the Board was impressed with Ms. Ramsepaul’s passion to provide ongoing care and support to those presently in need while simultaneously working to create longer term solutions to reduce homelessness and its underlying causes in our community and throughout society.
Ms. Ramsepaul’s first official day in her new role will be January 29. Please join us in welcoming Lissa to GMC and the Georgetown Community!
