Niles Comer, Project Director
Niles has spent his professional and personal life working for and alongside those at the margins of society – the addicted, the homeless, people living with HIV/AIDS and others forced to the fringes. His professional experiences include addictions counselor, recovery center manager, trainer/educator, community development specialists, social entrepreneur, and Internet CEO.
I am an addiction recovery advocate, a social entrepreneur, a community healer, and a person in long-term recovery dedicated to community renewal and healing.
Niles has spent over 30 years working in the areas of addiction treatment and recovery, HIV/AIDS, community development, the nonprofit world and as a social entrepreneur.
Niles holds a B.A. from Norwich University in Vermont and has done graduate work in Business, International Training, and Education. He is a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist and currently, he is completing his MBA in Social Impact from Eastern University.
He is also a person in long-term recovery who is crazy about coffee and Juno, his Shar-Pei mixed rescue dog (pictured below).
