Vice President, Community Initiatives
Ascala Sisk leads NeighborWorks America’s Community Initiatives, including the Stable Communities and Community Building and Engagement programs.
Sisk has always been motivated by the power of place, believing that where you live, work and play is the primary determinant of one’s health, wealth and happiness. To that end, Sisk spent several years at the national nonprofit KaBOOM!, facilitating partnerships between communities and the private sector in order to create new and safe places to play.
Sisk has a master's degree in Public Policy with a specialization in Public Sector Financial Management from the University of Maryland. She earned her undergraduate degree in Urban Studies from Brown University.
