Executive Director Named One of the 40 Under 40!

January 22, 2018

We are thrilled to announce that our Executive Director Daniel Roby has been selected by the Dallas Business Journal as a member of the 2018 class of 40 Under 40 !

The Dallas Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 Awards celebrate the up-and-comers and people that North Texas community should know—they’re the future executives and influencers to watch in the Dallas-Fort Worth business community and beyond.

These individuals are decision makers and leaders in their organizations and have been able to excel at their workplace or in their field at a remarkably fast pace. The Dallas Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 will set the tone for what is to come in North Texas.

Daniel embodies Austin Street’s core values: kindness, trustworthiness, empowerment, and determination. These values drive Daniel to seek out new and innovative ways to tackle the challenges faced by Dallas’ growing homeless population. Under Daniel’s leadership, ASC has doubled the number of case managers, initiated Diversion and Aftercare programs, and embraced the “Housing First” model of shelter management. ASC’s new capital campaign will focus on growing Austin Street’s services, facilities, and revenue to better serve the city’s homeless population. A new dining room, full-scale kitchen, and increased shower and restroom facilities are planned to better meet those needs.

Daniel was appointed by Mayor Rawlings to participate in the City of Dallas’ Commission on Homelessness. Daniel is currently a member of the Board of Directors of Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance and chair of the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) committee.

Daniel’s selection as an honoree for the 2018 40 Under 40 is one of several recognitions and accomplishments for this past year. As a member of the Leadership Dallas 2017class, Daniel’s proposal for The New Hope Garden was selected as the class project, adding a beautiful and bountiful space to the ASC campus, and in November, Daniel was named Non-profit CEO of the Year by CNM (the Center for Non-profit Management).

Please take a moment to congratulate Daniel on this well- deserved award!
