Michelle Forde, MS

Program Treasurer / Senior Resource Liaison

Michelle Forde first became interested in the human service field after a tragic accident. Growing up, motherhood was never something Michelle was interested in until she found herself pregnant at the age of 18. What was supposed to be a time of joy and celebration, was met with tragedy and heartbreak. Unfortunately, Michelle’s son was involved in a horrific car accident when he was only 27 weeks old. While laying on the floor dying a stranger came and saved his life. Her passion for working in the human service field came from those who showed nothing but compassion for helping her son survive and help keep her sane. She is just paying back and providing the same compassion for those in need. Michelle believes the work of a non-profit agency is the ability to help those who are down and to provide hope for what's to come.


Michelle received her Master’s of Science degree in Special Education, a Bachelor’s of Science in Community and Human Services, as well as an Associates of Arts degree in Applied Science.
