About the Speaker

Gregory A. Shinn 

 Greg began his social work career in 1988 on the Bowery in Manhattan, where he worked in homeless shelters and performed street outreach in subways, parks, and flophouses. 

He received his master’s degree in clinical social work from New York University in 1993. Since then, Greg has worked in a variety of settings, including state psychiatric hospitals, outpatient clinics, and home-based programs. 

From 1993 to 2001, Greg served as the Director of Social Services for the John Heuss House, a shelter in lower Manhattan’s financial district. 

In 2001, Greg relocated to Oklahoma to serve as our Associate Director because, as he said, “I moved here to get in on the ground floor of this vision the Association had to develop a portfolio of affordable housing options by raising millions of dollars of private money, while also going after federal grants at the same time, and we’ve never stopped growing.
