DAWN MURPHY – BC HPS Project Officer
I am a First Nation / Ukrainian and I am a daughter, cousin, wife, mother and aunty to many. I am very excited to join the Prince George Nechako Aboriginal Employment and Training Association as the B.C. Homelessness Partnering Strategy (BCHPS) Project Officer.
My background consists of 10 plus years in program management, human resources and administration and 17 plus years in the child and family services sector. I have had the opportunity to work with both Regional and Provincial representatives as well as both Federal and Provincial Government, most recent is my work with the Ministry of Children and Families, assisting and advocating for many families through mediations and in doing so, I have built many great working relations with many organizations and family lawyers throughout my tenure. I am very passionate in helping others and communities to achieve success!
As a previous leader from my own community I have had the opportunity to witness the importance in creating opportunities for individuals to become self-sustainable and the work that can be done to help communities become self-sufficient as they learn to develop and thrive!
I am very eager to be involved in this position and I look forward to meeting all of those involved with the B.C. Homelessness Partnering Strategy and all of its potential and investment it will mean to British Columbia.
