WASHINGTON, Aug. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Building Hope is pleased to announce the hiring of Dominique Fortune as the Manager of the Mid-Atlantic Region.
As the newest member of Building Hope, Ms. Fortune will provide program management services for charter schools seeking to develop facilities in Washington D.C. Her experience as a founding member of the Lee Montessori Public Charter School provided her the perspective of a charter school operator. She will provide direct client services to schools seeking to add new facilities and she will expand the pro bono Technical Assistance Center to provide more resources to more charter schools. The Technical Assistance Center has already provided support to 70 charter schools and can be expanded to help all charter schools.
"We are thrilled to welcome Dominique to the Building Hope team. Her understanding of charter schools and her experience in project and client relationship management will be absolutely valuable in helping us live up to our reputation for providing flexible solutions for our school partners" said Joseph Bruno, President of Building Hope.
Ms. Fortune will also provide Building Hope with more resources to engage more often with local community organizations and government officials to create a better environment for charter school students.
Prior to joining Building Hope, Ms. Fortune served as a Program Manager at Aurotech Corporation and TeleSolv Consulting, where she managed large-scale multi-million dollar projects. Ms. Fortune received her bachelor's degree in communication with a concentration in media studies at The College of Charleston.
Ms. Fortune joins Building Hope at a time when the organization has made great strides in advancing its efforts of providing children in under-served communities a chance at quality education. Through 2015, Building Hope's charter school facility projects exceed $1 billion across the United States.
