As Director of Development, Jill doubled the agency's transitional living capacity through permanent funding opportunities and community partnerships. Additionally, she led a statewide process improvement initiative that improved the efficiency and effectiveness of the services offered to clients and all cross-departmental work and developed and operationalized a comprehensive training program for direct care staff.

Jill also co-founded and led Newark Do Something, an organization designed to inspire, train and organize the city's young people to bring about community change in their neighborhoods. This program remains the model for the parent Do Something organization's efforts in schools and communities throughout the country.
