Tammy Roberts has been named the new executive director of the SideDoor youth organization in Yellowknife.
Roberts, currently executive director of the Foster Family Coalition, will take over the role in mid-November. The announcement was made at SideDoor’s annual general meeting on Tuesday.
“We’re excited to bring a new executive director into the organization … to take SideDoor and Hope’s Haven to the next level of excellence and vision,” SideDoor board co-chair Jonathan Geraci said.
SideDoor helps Yellowknife youth experiencing homelessness and provides a range of youth support programs.
“Our goal is to provide every youth, particularly the most vulnerable and at-risk, with the support services and resources that help them navigate a very challenging time in their lives,” SideDoor’s website states.
