Chief Executive Officer
San Antonio, TX

The largest provider of shelter and services for the homeless in San Antonio required a new CEO while the comprehensive new service center (Haven for Hope) was being designed After searching nationally at providers and advocacy groups, VSG expanded the engagement to consider prospects with more unconventional backgrounds but a deep passion for public service. Together with SAMM, VSG recruited Navarra Williams to San Antonio from his leadership role of a cable television company in California. Navarra, his Board, staff and volunteers have led SAMM to develop and deploy a successful homeless prevention program while earning the top rating from Charity Navigator for four years.
