Jack Lorenz, like so many of us, graduated from college with no idea what he wanted to do with his life. While working as a bartender, a customer asked him to handle the finances for a new production company. This turned out to be the beginning of a career making movies; overseeing production at major studios like Sony and Universal, until he was called to work in the field of social justice. Jack spent 12 years as the Executive Director of the Gatekeeper Foundation, and four years as Director of Programs and Development at Equality California. He is now at The Alliance For Housing and Healing as Director of Development and Communications. The Alliance For Housing and Healing provides the basic necessities of life to men, women, children, and families living with HIV/AIDS through a safety net of essential housing and direct supportive services. We talk about finding his life’s work and the crucial need for services like this with the homeless population in California.
