Michele Conderino
Executive Director

Since June 2019, Michele Conderino, MSW, has served as Executive Director of Open Doors. During her time here, Michele has helped lead Open Doors to the greater adoption of innovative and evidence-based practices to end homelessness. She provides regional leadership on the Fairfield County Coordinated Access Network, Opening Doors Fairfield County (the HUD Continuum of Care planning body), and the board of Supportive Housing Works. She recently partnered with the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness on a statewide campaign to enlist realtors and engage landlords.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Michele has led the state in highlighting the heroism of front-line staff who are facing risks and challenges as they continue to deliver services to people in shelters and hotels.

Prior to her role at Open Doors, Michele has worked for nearly two decades in homeless, human services, and mental health services, including as the Regional director for Northern Fairfield County and Director of Homeless Services at Catholic Charities. She received a Masters in Social Work at the University of Connecticut and a Bachelors in Social Work from Western Connecticut State University.
