Introducing our new Executive Director: Candace Winslow
June 11, 2018
We’re pleased to announce that we have appointed Candace Winslow as The Storehouse of Collin County’s new Executive Director, effective immediately.
Since 2009, The Storehouse of Collin County has served the Collin County community by feeding, clothing, and caring for our neighbors in need through our three initiatives. As we enter our tenth year of operations, we aim to continue serving the estimated 130,000 people in Collin County who live at or below the poverty level.
Candace’s appointment comes at an exciting time for The Storehouse. After our rebranding in 2016 in which we rolled out our new name and bold, modern logo to our community - we are expecting to expand our facilities starting the fall of 2018 to serve our community more effectively. Candace’s proven track record in corporate management, consulting as well as nonprofit and philanthropic organization leadership equips her to oversee our growth and execute our organization’s strategic plan.
Prior to her appointment, Candace has been a volunteer at our Seven Loaves Food Pantry, serving our clients alongside her son. She understands and embraces the mission of The Storehouse to provide relief and respite for those in need. She has experienced firsthand the positive impact our volunteers make in the lives of the families that walk through our doors. We are privileged to have a leader who will be able to represent The Storehouse in networking and fundraising efforts moving forward.
Candace began her career with Accenture (formerly Andersen Consulting) helping clients with organizational design, change and communication initiatives. Following her tenure at Accenture, Winslow founded and served as president/CEO of AtWork Solutions, Inc., a strategic human resources consulting firm. She was also a staff member at Highland Park United Methodist Church where she held leadership roles, including coordinator of the Violence Intervention and Prevention (VIP) Ministry; director of the children’s ministry; and executive director of strategy and discipleship. Her passion for community service is manifested in her decades of work with numerous charitable organizations such as the American Red Cross, Community Partners of Dallas, Christian Women’s Job Corps, Family Compass, Genesis Women’s Shelter, Junior League of Dallas, and many others.
Winslow, a native of Houston, earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Texas at Austin and a Master of Arts Degree in Christian Education from Dallas Theological Seminary. Winslow resides in Dallas with her husband John and two children.
