Charismatic, Thoughtful, and Driven, Odalis Gonzalez joined The Trevor Project in 2012 as the New York/ Randy Stone Call Center Crisis Services Manager. A native Brooklynite, Odalis received her B.A. in Psychology from The University at Albany. Fresh out of college, her career began as a Youth Care Worker with Boys Town. Odalis worked with youth in detention, focusing on independent and daily living skills in preperation for the youth's departure back into the community. Later on, Odalis was promoted as Assistant Family Teacher, focusing in on the family reunification process between these young men in detention and their families. Odalis is now looking to focus her experience and dedication to the LGBTQ community, and serve as a support to our New York Lifeline Counselors. When she is not supporting our Lifeline Counselors and keeping the ball rolling, you can find Odalis roaming the busy streets of New York, planning her next adventure, or spending the day in front of the screen zoned into movies.
