This Is H.O.W. Names New Executive Director

This Is H.O.W. is a Phoenix based 501c(3) charitable organization that provides a transitional living environment for Trans persons in crisis.

On August 1 the This Is H.O.W. Board of Directors appointed Antonia “Toni” D’orsay as the new Executive Director of the organization and committed itself to expanding on the services it offers to transgender individuals in the Valley.

“I’m humbled by the honor, and committed to carrying This Is H.O.W.’s mission and the vision of its Founder, Regina Gazelle, forward through these troubled economic times." Ms. D’orsay said.

The organization was founded in 2006 by Regina Gazelle, and is dedicated to the betterment of the lives of Trans (transsexual, transgender, and gender variant) persons experiencing crisis situations such as homelessness, substance abuse, familial abuse, and transition related difficulties.

The organization is currently conducting a fundraising drive and this weekend is coordinating a day of service from 8 AM MST to 5 PM MST on the 21st and 22 for the purposes of cleaning, painting, reorganizing and redecorating the This is H.O.W. facility.

Congratulations Toni on the new ED position and may you and the Board of Directors be successful in keeping alive and expanding the vision of this organization.
