Susan Starrett believes in community. As executive director of Homeless Planning Council of Delaware, she’s trying to make ours better for everyone by working to house the homeless and prevent further homelessness. That means uniting everyone who has the same interest, whether they’re stakeholders, service providers, funders or the homeless themselves. Starrett is also chair of the Delaware Interagency Council on Homelessness and incoming president of the Delaware Housing Coalition. “In order to be a community planner, you have to help people create a vision for what they want their world to look like,” she says. “In my previous role at the Delaware HIV Consortium and in my current role, I have had the incredible opportunity of working with passionate people who want to make a difference in their community.”
