Power of One
Since becoming employed at The Mockingbird Society (TMS), I have changed. Not because of the outside world, but because of the character I’ve grown into. If you’ve come to a luncheon, you’ve heard me say, “because of Mockingbird, I’ve found the strength in my voice”— that holds true.
Pay It Forward
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be on the streets without a home to go to? With the Stories of Youth Homelessness training, The Mockingbird Society’s young adult staff introduce different scenarios that put audience members in the “driver’s seat” of being on the streets.
We are excited to announce that Laura Pierce has joined The Mockingbird Society’s team as Interim Executive Director! Laura comes to us highly recommended. Over the past 17 years, she has been an excellent interim leader and organizational consultant for many local nonprofits.
Laura Pierce, the new Interim Executive Director of The Mockingbird Society, began her work with nonprofits in 1989. She has done work with fundraising, community organizing, and high-level management positions. In 1998, she began consulting with quite a few nonprofit organizations to help with strategic planning, board development, and helping organizations create more capacity.

Homelessness can befall anyone, from any walk of life, from any cultural demographic, at any age. There is no one definitive reason, though we know that there are basic supports all people need in order to have a starting platform from which to seek self-fulfillment and to be able to function in society.
