Welcoming Melanie Reyes as our Strategy Officer for Strengthening Community Power


We are thrilled to announce Melanie Reyes as the Victoria Foundation's newest strategy officer. Melanie will be leading the work in our focus area of Building Community Power, one of the three priority areas in our new strategic framework.

Melanie comes to Victoria Foundation with deep personal and professional connections to Newark. Melanie is a Newark native, and has dedicated her professional career to serving the greater Newark community through various roles in the nonprofit sector, most recently as director of the Financial Opportunity Center and lead for Housing Justice work at the Ironbound Community Corporation. Having led initiatives in community development, economic empowerment, environmental justice, and housing justice spaces, she brings a unique skill set and insight to the Foundation team.

As Strategy Officer for Building Community Power, Melanie will work closely with members of the Newark community to co-design and implement strategies that advance the Foundation's mission and strategic framework.

We hope you will join us in welcoming Melanie, and can learn more about her in her bio.
