Audrey Thomas is CEO of Deborah's Place, founded in 1984 after a survey of social services in Chicago revealed that existing programs did not address the needs of women who are homeless. The nonprofit’s mission has been to open doors of opportunity for women through supportive housing and services. Thomas believes that for social service professionals to be successful, they need to see their work as a vocation.
