CATHOLIC CHARITIES - ARLINGTON HIRES ALEXANDRIA NATIVE AND HOMELESSNESS EXPERT KEVIN MONDLOCH AS CHRIST HOUSE DIRECTOR

Arlington, Virginia, May 14, 2012 – Kevin Mondloch, the new director of ‘Christ House’ shelter in Alexandria brings experience, passion for the mission and a long history of community commitment to his new position as head of one of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington’s oldest programs.
A native of Alexandria and a graduate of Bishop Ireton High School and James Madison University, Mondloch is the former director of the Community Services Team at New Hope Housing in Alexandria. Prior to his service at New Hope, Mondloch was chief strategist for Hired Gun Organizational Services where he designed and delivered integrated performance systems to drive desired behaviors. His 25+ years of business experience and ten years at a senior management level have given him a strong foundation for measurable results.

“Kevin’s experience, passion for helping the homeless and deep commitment to his faith and community will be great asset to the program, to the residents at Christ House and to all of Catholic Charities,” said Art Bennett, president and CEO of Catholic Charities. “We’re excited to bring him on board and continue providing integrated services that help Christ House residents in body, mind and soul.” 
Mondloch’s interest in helping those in need by developing job and life skills to break the cycle of homelessness was encouraged and fostered by his deep faith and active participation in the Knights of Columbus (Bishop Bernard Sheil Assembly #2330 and the Holy Family Council #11981) and Good Shepherd Parish. His family has been involved in homelessness issues in Alexandria for decades and his father and mother, Bob and Joyce Mondloch, were founders of Good Shepherd Housing and Family Services as well as Route 1 Corridor Housing.

“Kevin has the drive and energy to deliver real change for the ministries of Christ House,”  said Fr. Tom Ferguson, pastor of Good Shepherd Parish.
