Jon DeCarmine
Board Member

Jon DeCarmine serves as the Executive Director of GRACE, a one-stop assistance center and low-barrier emergency shelter in Gainesville, FL. He oversees emergency and permanent housing programs, strategic planning, and visioning. His work is guided by two core principles – that everyone deserves a safe place to call home, and that the idea of human beings sleeping on our streets is not “normal,” but rather an unacceptable indication of policy failures and broken systems.
