Ashlee Pyanowski, Chief Executive Officer
Ash grew up in a community recovery home starting in 2005 with her mother and sisters, following the death of their father. She completed high school with honors, graduated from UC San Diego and returned to her hometown to combat the homeless crisis. She volunteered with the State Legislature, and previously worked for Brilliant Corners to find homes for people exiting institutions through the LA County Office of Diversion and Reentry. She guides our organization with humility to pay forward the help she received.

She is now the Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer, overseeing all of our daily operations, financial management, fundraising, grants, and fund accounting.
Jennifer Castro, Homeless Services Director
Jennifer has dedicated her life to preventing and ending homelessness. A local Sylmar resident, she can always be found helping her neighbors. She volunteers to implement data systems and provide housing navigation to help secure permanent homes.
Denise Gonzales, Mental Health Caseworker
Denise volunteers to connect people to resources necessary to address underlying causes of homelessness and helps people to find and maintain long term housing stability. Her expertise and lived experience is a blessing for all our residents.
