Arm In Arm Welcomes Jenn Johnston, New Director of Communications and Development

Jenn joins the Arm In Arm team with nearly 10 years of nonprofit experience, spanning from coast to coast. She started her career in Boston at a small nonprofit focused on empowering girls through media; there, she found a deep passion for philanthropy, community mobilization, and social change. In addition to Beantown, Jenn has worked with and advised organizations in San Francisco, Portland, Philadelphia, and more on fundraising, event, public relations, and volunteer activities. Most recently, Jenn headed the development and communications department at a Philadelphia nonprofit creating academic equity for underprivileged urban students.

In the last year, she relocated with her significant other and foster cat to the Trenton area. When she discovered Arm In Arm’s phenomenal work in the community, she was eager to become part of such an important mission: “I believe in the power of community. Coming together is powerful and impactful. We live in a world in need of transformation, and that transformation starts right here. With you. With me. Arm In Arm truly embodies this notion, and I am excited to work alongside my community members, leading by example together to create a better, stronger community for us all.”
