Say hello to Pastor Sue Koesterman, Homes for All's new Co-Chair!

Pastor Sue is a native of the Fargo/Moorhead area. She majored in Philosophy at MSUM in Moorhead and graduated with a Masters in Divinity from Luther Seminary in 2006. Pastor Sue served as pastor at Elim Lutheran Church in downtown Fargo for 10 years prior to accepting her current call as Chief Executive Officer at Churches United for the Homeless in Moorhead. While serving at Elim, she worked closely with others in the community to organize the FM Sheltering Churches Project, which provided seven seasons of emergency overnight winter shelter in church buildings throughout the community as a supplement to shelter capacity. She continues to be very active as a community organizer and advocate on behalf of those who are struggling with homelessness and poverty. In February of 2018, Churches United for the Homeless completed construction of the Bright Sky Apartments in Moorhead, which provide 43 units of Permanent Supportive Housing. In January of 2019, the FM Dorothy Day House of Hospitality and the Dorothy Day Food Pantries merged with Churches United for the Homeless. The organization currently employs 50 team members across five sites, serving approximately 465 persons each day by providing safe shelter, stable housing, nutritious food, and a path towards healing. Pastor Sue resides in Moorhead with her husband, Mike. Together they have raised five children. In recent years they have been blessed with three grandchildren, all of whom live nearby! 

Pastor Sue will join Allison Streich as Co-Chair of Homes for All. The co-chairs lead the coalition, representing different aspects of the housing continuum from homelessness to affordable housing. Welcome, Pastor Sue!
