Alison Castro Program Coordinator
Alison Samuels Castro is one of our newest recruits to Meals on Wheels of the Salinas Valley. She is our new Program Coordinator and joined us in March 2020. As Program Coordinator Alison is responsible for volunteer coordination, inventory and ordering of meals, and client assessments.
Shortly after graduating with a B.S. in Psychology from CSU Monterey Bay in 2011 Alison was employed by St. Andrew’s Residential Programs for Youth (S.T.A.R. Programs) in San Jose where she worked focusing on care for wards of the juvenile court system and immigrant children, housing them and helping them learn essential skills to become contributing members of society.
In her spare time Alison enjoys spending time outdoors in her yard, hiking the local Monterey County trails, coaching her 3 children in sports. Most of all she enjoys spending family time with her husband Andrew and three children, Lilly, Landen and A.J.
