Gabrielle Rene has been an active community volunteer since she was a teenager and a community organizer with City Life for 4 years. Like so many, Gabrielle came to City Life because she had been impacted by the predatory mortgage crisis of 2008. She has since been enlightened about this country’s housing crises and has developed a strong desire to fight towards sustainable solutions. Prior to becoming a community organizer, Gabrielle worked in banking, finance and taxation. Gabrielle’s goal is to combine her personal and professional experiences to serve and to empower families, especially those who are in marginalized communities.
