Kristan McIntosh specializes in behavioral health programming designed to both enhance access to community-based care and facilitate program and organizational sustainability.
She has extensive development experience, working across a number of human service sectors to fund and implement programming that responds to the needs of a wide array of vulnerable populations, including individuals with co-occurring behavioral health and chronic health conditions; children, youth, and families; and those affected by the criminal justice system and/or homelessness.
Prior to joining HMA, Kristan served as a project manager at SAE & Associates. She established a successful track record of helping secure grant funding for nonprofit behavioral health clients. A social worker by training, Kristan began her career working with children and youth diagnosed with serious emotional disturbances and their families in a clinical residential setting.
She received her bachelor’s degree from Williams College and her Master of Social Work in Social Enterprise Administration from Columbia University School of Social Work.
Kristan currently lives in New York City, and she is a three-time marathoner with a goal of running a marathon in every major city in the United States. She volunteers with a number of organizations, including Back on My Feet-NYC, an organization that uses running as an empowerment tool for individuals experiencing homelessness.
