Director of Public Relations
Odessa Gonzales relocated to Albuquerque from Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2003 and has over six years of experience in non-profit direct care and development. Odessa’s overall goal is to see the children and families of New Mexico thrive. With the growing rates in poverty, child abuse, divorce rates and low economic growth in Albuquerque, Odessa knows that giving back and helping underserved populations is where she wants to put her focus.
Odessa has experienced firsthand many of the hardships of the families we serve here at All Faiths. Knowing how instrumental an agency such as All Faiths can be in healing and working through trauma she is passionately driven to fundraise around a mission that is close to her heart. Odessa’s warm and caring personality encourages members of our community to not just support All Faiths, but to become a part of our family and invest in the children of our community. Her incredible eye for detail, combined with her fun loving spirit, creates fundraising events that are not only memorable for attendees but also raise significant funding to support All Faiths’ mission.
Before coming to All Faiths, Odessa worked with clients in the field as a Behavioral Management Support worker at APS and a Community Support Worker for another local non-profit. She holds a BA in Family Studies from the University of New Mexico.
