Samantha Rogers

Director of Operation

Sami Rogers has been with Sister League since September 2020 and has been serving as the Housing Director since July 2021. Her responsibilities include managing both Redwood and Fourth avenue homes, overseeing the referral/intake process for potential residents and performing outreach within the San Diego community. One of Sami’s goals is to provide a secure, comfortable and encouraging environment in which the residents can learn, grow and prosper.
