Dan Austin, St. Vincent de Paul Juneau General Manager, passes away
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul of Juneau is saddened by the death of General Manager, Dan Austin, who passed away Wednesday, July 25th.
For over 20 years Dan served the Society with great commitment and love. He leaves a legacy of incredible business acumen, skill at navigating grants and rules related to low income housing, but most of all, great passion and care for the poor and homeless in Juneau.
“To me, Dan was a true example of someone living out the mission of the Society, which is to ‘provide material and spiritual charity and work for social justice for all people’”, said Board President, Maureen Hall. “He was a compassionate friend to all and a visionary leader, he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.”
In the coming week the Board of Directors will be meeting to name an interim manager while it conducts a search for a successor.
