Harold is the Assistant Executive Director and Lead Case Manager at First Stop. Harold is from Fayetteville, Tennessee and has been working with First Stop since June of 2020. His favorite thing about working with First Stop is being at the forefront of how the public addresses homelessness. This means not only assisting clients with immediate needs, but helping to establish a lasting change in the community. When asked what prompted Harold to start working in homeless services, he said “Believe it or not, I was inspired by Boy Scouts. Being in the scouts gave me a greater insight into community service. I worked for the Salvation Army for sixteen years doing maintenance, dispatch, pickups, and case management. My time at the Salvation Army gave me so much experience working with the homeless community.”
