Samantha Vite is the Community & Outreach Manager for the COH. She works with the communications team to provide technical support and guidance in outreach and communications strategies, with a particular interest in reaching new audiences.
Her expertise is based in multiple areas of community development which focus on poverty & homelessness, harm reduction and issues of social justice within the criminal justice system. Samantha graduated with an MSW from the University of Toronto in 2014. Her passions lie in using an international lens to work on social justice initiatives within local communities through stakeholder engagement; this has led her to working for the Ministry of Community Development, in partnership with the Caribbean Development Bank, in St. Kitts & Nevis and heading the successful transition of a new emergency shelter into a Toronto community by engaging with local residents and government.
