“Blessing really do fall in your lap,” screams Dominique Mack, New Community Service Director for Coastal Georgia Community Action.

Residence of the Hinesville Housing Authority have been informed of this blessing and community partners like the homeless collision, Family Connection partners and local churches.

New Community Services Director
Dominique Mack, a License Master Social Worker is our newly appointed Community Services Director. Three months in and she says she feels like she is growing in her role.
"It has been challenging to learn so many new things at once, but I truly love the work. This job is what I've always envisioned myself doing creating and overseeing innovating programs that make an impact on low-income individuals and families."
Originally from Brunswick Dominique came back to her hometown in 2015. Previously, she worked in victim services with an extensive background with advocating on the behalf of victims of violent crimes, mentoring and empowering families, women and girls in various capacities. Dominique also has a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Social Work from Florida State University. She shares she's passionate about people, food, and balling on a budget but, not necessarily in that order. She enjoys cooking fabulous and affordable meals, caring for her daughter Zora, pinning projects on Pinterest, concocting DIY ideas, watching Wendy Williams, texting her best friends, and writing notes-to-self.
We look forward to the wonderful work that Dominique will do with Coastal Georgia Community Action.
