Venisse Charles
Housing Coordinator

Venisse is a woman who knows what she’s doing. She not only handles the many individual housing cases that come through our door, she is a master of the art of holistic case management. Her comprehensive intake offers clients assistance with a variety of public benefits, referrals for needed services and more! She came to FDC with many years’ experience in the financial services industry as a licensed mortgage broker but after deciding she wanted to move towards more mission-driven work she joined the non-profit world. Prior to FDC, Venisse was a TASA Supervisor with teen parents at risk at Community Counseling Mediation. She holds a BS in Public Administration from Medgar Evers College and a Paralegal degree from New York University. She is a writer of fiction and non-fiction, an amateur interior designer, a mother and recent grandmother.
