About Us

Laura Young

Laura is an active member of the Arlington Community through her volunteer work with Doorways and her neighborhood public schools. Professionally, Laura’s background is in information technology project management; however, her current full-time vocation is parenting two active boys and giving back to the community.

Laura’s journey with Doorways began as a volunteer for the Freddie Mac Foundation Family Home. Her experience as a family home shopper and interaction with Doorways management team drew her to the board where she provides insight on issues impacting the organization.

“Interpersonal violence and family homelessness are global challenges, but I am drawn to Doorways’ local focus and successful outcomes. Doorways embraces families facing harm and instability on behalf of our caring community and provides clients with the support, dignity and opportunities needed to emerge safe, optimistic and independent.”
