Being passionate about human relationships and service, Susan Weber considers working with families not just a job, but an honor. With the strong desire to fulfill her lifelong calling, she returned to school and received a Master’s Degree in Social Work, a field that allowed her to work with the community through service and advocacy for underserved families.
Susan worked as the Director of the Ark Preschool, a Pre-K program for children ages 3-4, whose families are experiencing homelessness and poverty. Along with procuring grants and garnering strong community partnerships, Susan led a dynamic team to move The Ark to become a high-quality program that implements MSDE standards for Kindergarten Readiness.
Prior to her move to Baltimore in 2014, she worked with low-income families as the Family Self-Sufficiency Coordinator for the Housing Authority of Bowling Green in Kentucky, where she worked with a culturally-diverse population. Susan has 22 years of working experience in non-profit settings, managing programs, which included the First 5 Project, a San Diego County-funded program that promotes the health and well-being of young children from the prenatal stage through five years of age.
Between running the Early Headstart Program and working with families, Susan sings with her church choir and enjoys doing nothing on the weekends.
“Social Work… the cord that binds the community to work together; the voice soft enough to give comfort, yet strong enough to advocate for the underserved; the springboard of hope for those who feel they are at a dead end; and the ladder to healing and success.”
