Meet our speakers:

Jack Marth, Director of Programs
Jack first became associated with POTS in 1982 as a volunteer in the original POTS soup kitchen while he was a student at Fordham. He worked in various roles at POTS from 1989-1992. In 200, Jack graduated from law school and was one of 25 people nationwide to be awarded a legal public interest fellowship from the Skadden Fellowship Foundation, which lead to the creation of POTS' Legal Clinic. He served as the clinic's director until his promotion to director or programs. In between working for POTS, Jack worked with the Jesuit Refugee Service in El Salvador and as a case manager at the shelter for mentally ill seniors. 

Josef Aguilar, Associate Director of Next-Step Services 
Joseph joined POTS in 2015 as its Nutrition Outreach and Education Program (NOEP) coordinator and was promoted to Program Manager in 2017 and Associate Director of Next-Services in 2019. He currently oversees POTS workforce development, case management, and comprehensive case management teams which annually secures nearly $12 million in benefits each year. While at POTS, he has created partnerships to deepen client access to healthcare related benefits, workforce programs, mental health service and many other services.

Hamilton Esteban, Stability and Self-Sufficiency Mentor
Hamilton came to POTS in February 2018 to lead and advance the organization’s Comprehensive Case Management program as the Stability and Self-Sufficiency Mentor. Hamilton brings his knowledge of criminal justice and New York laws and policies through his studies at CUNY John Jay of Criminal Justice. Hamilton has also gained extensive experience in building interpersonal skills, leading and coordinating organizational programs in his years working with the ACDP Sedwick Cornerstone Community Center, ACDP Beacon Community Center M.S. 117, and the ACDP SONYC Program. Having recently received his Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Baruch College, Hamilton’s experience interacting with and providing guidance for families has been a major advantage to POTS as he connects with clients and helps them strategize goals for their stability and self-sufficiency.

Christina Hanson, Executive Director
Christina joined POTS in 2012 and became executive director in 2019. She played a major role in developing POTS into the “one-stop shop” that it is today through her long-time influence on program strategy and leadership on implementation of the strategic plan. Prior to joining POTS, she developed skills in the area of finance and analysis at Mooring Financial Corporation, aid and international development as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Senegal and nonprofit strategy and fundraising at Fairmount Ventures.
