It is with great enthusiasm that the Casa Youth Shelter board and staff announce the appointment of Jessica Hubbard as Chief Executive Officer of Casa Youth Shelter. We know you will join us in welcoming her to our House. Since her first day on January 23rd, Jessica has been connecting with staff, leading board and committee meetings, and connecting with the CYS community.

Jessica brings a unique set of skills, perspectives, and relationships to lead Casa Youth Shelter into the future. Building on our rich history and previous accomplishments, under her leadership we will hone our strategic direction, grow and develop our programs, strengthen our partnerships, and build new long-lasting relationships.

Before joining us, Jessica was the Chief Program Officer at Girls Inc. of Orange County. In her time with Girls Inc., she helped establish and implement the programmatic vision for the agency and saw its annual provided services jump from 4,000 girls annually to over 7,000 annually and over 25 programs annually. She led the increase in corporate engagement and giving by growing and scaling the workforce readiness program by 500%. Jessica actively engaged with other agencies, service providers, colleagues and clients to help cultivate and steward strong professional relationships and partnerships. She has an impressive record of attracting, developing, coaching, and retaining a high-performing team and empowering them to reach even greater heights.

Jessica holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminology and Law, from the University of Florida, a Master of Science in Educational Leadership, from Nova Southeastern University, and a Juris Doctor, from Western State University College of Law. She has served as a dedicated volunteer for many years with Take Stock in Children Scholarship Program and Camp Brave Heart. She and her husband and 2 children live in Orange County and share a passion for family and service.

Casa Youth Shelter is looking forward to beginning this new phase under Jessica’s leadership and continuing to provide a safe space for our most vulnerable youth ages 12-17 here in the southern California region.
