Commitment to her community of colleagues and neighbors is paramount to Ms. Morea.

The board of directors for the Crossway Community, a nationally recognized innovator in enabling families to achieve self-sufficiency, also benefits from Ms. Morea's leadership. Crossway offers a continuum of integrated educational and supportive services with a focus on outreach to low-income, at-risk families.
