Board of Trustees

Downstreet is guided by a volunteer Board of Trustees responsible for the fiscal health of the organization. Our Board is structured in such a way as to represent the general population (“general” members); professionals holding prominent community positions, such as legislators, lobbyists, and leaders of the faith community (“public” representatives); and beneficiaries of Downstreet’s programs and services (“resident” representatives).
