Nonprofit Business Leader of the Year: Mark Swann leads Preble Street on a statewide mission of fighting poverty
We are thrilled to share that Preble Street Executive Director, Mark Swann, has been named a Nonprofit Business Leader of the year by MaineBiz! In his 30 years as our leader, he has helped the agency grow from two employees working in Portland to nearly 300 employees and 1000 volunteers working all over the state of Maine. Among many accomplishments last year, Mark guided the agency through the opening of a Healing Center for survivors of human trafficking, the completion of a successful capital campaign, the beginning of construction on a new Wellness shelter, and the announcement of the Food Security Hub — the first food hub in Maine focused on food insecurity. All of this growth means we can serve more people experiencing poverty, hunger, and homelessness and we can do it better than ever before.
Please join us in congratulating Mark on this well-deserved recognition, and read his interview with MaineBiz here.
The mission of Preble Street is to provide accessible barrier-free services to empower people experiencing problems with homelessness, housing, hunger, and poverty, and to advocate for solutions to these problems.
