Katelyn Gonzalez, Director

440-752-1823 |

My name is Katelyn Gonzalez and I’m the Director of the Rising Titans Collaborative, with Lead Partner Neighborhood Alliance and funded by United Way of Greater Lorain County. My role is to facilitate community partners, as a Collaborative, to ensure the Kindergarten Readiness of Lorain’s children and families. I’ve been in a leadership position with the Collaborative since 2018 and have earned the Director title over time. I graduated from The Ohio State University with my Bachelor of Science in Social Work and went onto Graduate School at Cleveland State University to obtain my Masters of Social Work degree. My position with Neighborhood Alliance is my first “big girl” job post-college, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world! Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to become a Red Cross CPR Instructor, I’ve also participated in Green Belt through the United Way of Greater Lorain County’s Six Sigma program, and have supervised five social work college students so far at Neighborhood Alliance. I currently sit on two non-profit Board of Directors, have sat on three boards total, and was inducted into Leadership Lorain County’s signature class program of 2020, amongst many other community-driven opportunities in Lorain and Lorain County.

Zuly is the Collaborative’s Programming Assistant. Her role is to facilitate Collab programs and engagement in the community and for our partners. She is the face of our new and improved Play Group, which kicks off this week! Below is Zuly’s intro to the community —

Hi my name is Zuly! I’m the new Rising Titans Programming Assistant. My primary role as a Collaborative staff member is to facilitate Play Group. I will also be assisting in other outreach opportunities. I’ve lived in Lorain most of my life, and I’m excited to work with Lorain families! When I’m not working, my hobbies include spending time with my son and being in the kitchen. Cooking is one of my passions! I am most excited for growth and opportunity within the Collaborative, and developing quality programming. Please say hi, if you see me in the community! I look forward to working with our families to strengthen Kindergarten Readiness!
