Angela Grant Joins Board for Authority for the Homeless

(SAVANNAH, GA) Angela M. Grant has recently joined the Chatham Savannah Authority for the Homeless Board of Directors. The authority works in partnership with nonprofit service providers, government officials, the faith community and the business community to reduce and eliminate homelessness.

Grant is a case manager team leader for St. Joseph’s/Candler Georgia Infirmary. This long-established program is designed to help avoid or delay nursing facility placement, decrease hospitalizations and emphasize preventive health care. In addition to helping the elderly, The Georgia Infirmary provides safe and affordable housing for vulnerable populations.

Grant received a master’s degree in public administration and is a part-time house parent for Park Place Outreach, which provides services to at-risk kids and teenagers and their families.

“Angela brings a wealth of knowledge, compassion and understanding to the homeless authority’s board,” said Julie Wade, director of Park Place Outreach. “She’s a beloved house parent for Park Place, and I am thrilled to know she is part of the conversation for ending homelessness in the Savannah area.”

Grant is a St. Joseph’s/Candler Mercy Volunteer who also gives her time to Second Harvest Food Bank, Girls Scouts of America and The Martin de Porres Society of Savannah.

Grant, who is married and has three children, enjoys traveling around the globe, reading and, of course, volunteering.
