Meet the Interim Executive Director

Susan M. Newhouse

The Board of Directors of Village At Home has appointed Susan M. Newhouse as Interim Executive Director. Serving pro bono, Susan’s task is to guide the organization to launch of services.

Susan M. Newhouse, LCSW-C, has lived in Roland Park for 25 years. She graduated from Kalamazoo College in Michigan and received her Masters in Social Work from New York University. She is a clinical social worker. Until 2011, she taught in the gerontology department at Towson University. She has worked as a social worker in hospice and at John Hopkins in a dementia clinic providing family support. She currently owns her own geriatric care management agency. As a volunteer, she spearheaded the community drive to renovate and expand the Roland Park Library, serving as Treasurer of the Roland Park Library Initiative.

In 2006, Susan was inspired by the New York Times article, Aging at Home: For a Lucky Few, a Wish Come True. In reading about Beacon Hill Village, an innovative program in Boston designed to help people age at home, Susan describes an “Aha” moment, where she thought, “This is the way I want to grow old.” She began to dream of a similar Village for North Baltimore. A group of like-minded community members gathered for the first time in 2008 to discuss starting Village At Home in North Baltimore.
