Niles Comer, Project Director
For over 30 years, 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, and CEO.
Niles has spent decades as a consultant in the areas of substance abuse treatment, HIV/AIDS, nonprofit management, capital development, and social enterprise.
Niles holds a B.A. from Norwich University in Vermont and has done graduate work in Business and Adult Education/Training. He is a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist and is currently completing a masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
He is also a person in long-term recovery who is crazy about coffee and Juno, his German Shepherd/Shar-Pei mixed rescue dog (pictured below).
