Member Spotlight is an editorial series shouting out Generocity members’ latest news. Learn more about membership at generocity.org/membership.


We’ve said it before: Gotta love those early adopters.

Last month, Generocity and every market of sister site Technical.ly launched membership as a way for readers to support us beyond clicks and shares. We kept the description of perks purposefully vague because, to be quite honest, we were still figuring out what those perks were going to be.

One thing we knew we wanted to do, though, was celebrate our members in some public, newsy way. Enter: Member Spotlight, a new feature we’ll be publishing every few weeks to highlight a few members’ latest projects, job changes or whatever else they want to share.

Want to get in on the action? Learn more about why we launched membership here, and become a member here. Here’s what’s new with three of our very first members:

Christine Simiriglia

The Pathways to Housing PA executive director is hype about the homelessness nonprofit’s second annual Chair Affair, an auction and fundraiser to benefit Pathways’ Philadelphia Furniture Bank.

The event will be held Thursday, April 19, at Moore College of Art & Design. Get tickets here to bid on a chair that’s been upcycled by local artists.

(Psst, I spoke with furniture bank Director Tom Maroon last year before the inaugural Chair Affair. Check out that episode of “Around the Corner” here.)

Owen Camuso

This month, Camuso will become human services nonprofit Resources for Human Development’s (RHD) assistant regional director of its Pennsylvania Behavioral Health and Housing Division after seven years as program manager for its FaSST/Connections program.

Camuso’s new work will be focused on RHD’s Montgomery County programs. He worked previously as program director for homelessness nonprofit Back on My Feet.

Lauren Cristella

Cristella joined government and policy nonprofit Committee of Seventy this January as its chief advancement officer, where she oversees board relations, external affairs, the Buchholz Fellowship Program and other programming.

Cristella worked for the previous seven years at Penn’s Fels Institute of Government, first as its director of marketing and strategic initiatives and later as its director of student affairs and strategic operations.
