Dr. Deb Moses (she/her/hers), DPA, MPH, is the current Executive Director/CEO of House of Charity.
Deb's experience has included a variety of social service initiatives addressing the needs of our community members experiencing significant barriers. Deb has managed large programs and shaped public policy as a state and county manager as well as from the grassroots level. She has overseen budgets up to $110 million, has actively raised program and capital revenue, has improved service delivery, and has managed multiple programs and facilities within complex regulatory environments.
“I am so excited for the merger of these two organizations who have served our un-housed community for years. This union of two high performing, high quality, and passionate service providers will improve the continuum of care for those we serve. I also believe our strength in numbers will bolster our voice on public policy proposals written to address the needs of those we serve.”
Deb has committed herself to many social justice initiatives ranging from raising the minimum wage to $15 to fighting to keep the private prison from re-opening. She teaches as an adjunct professor in the School of Public Health at St Mary’s University and at Metro State in the graduate programs in human services and public administration. She has served in several volunteer leadership roles as chair of Mount Zion’s Tzedek (social justice) committee, as well as a board member, co-chair of National Council of Jewish Women’s racial justice committee and an active volunteer for Jewish Community Action. Deb also serves on the Community board for Hennepin Health, the Hennepin County CoC Operations board and the University of Minnesota School of Public Health alumni board.
Deb holds a Doctorate in Public Administration from Hamline University and a Master’s in Public Health with a major in Health Services Administration from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. She has a chemical dependency counseling certificate and advanced credentials in health service administration.
A lifelong resident of the Twin Cities area and currently living in South Minneapolis, Deb is passionately committed to serving our community in a culturally competent, anti-racist environment under the philosophy of servant leadership.
