Two New Directors at CSC

Community Services Consortium (CSC) welcomes two new directors: Suzanne Miller joins CSC as the new Head Start Director, and Clay Martin is the new Director of the Workforce and Education program.

Miller worked in program management and with children and families in areas of advocacy, counseling, and outreach. As Executive Director of a domestic violence coalition, she was responsible for shelter for women and children, court advocacy, counseling, and coordination with other social service agencies. She was the Director of the Children’s Program of the Hospice of Marin in California where she implemented clinical and educational programs and services for children. Miller comes from a large family with lots of nephews and nieces. She lives in Gleneden Beach.

Martin came from CSC’s Community Housing Resources program where he worked on a variety of projects including two housing projects in Newport which will provide 18 units of housing for homeless families and individuals. In addition, he helped organize the Lincoln Community Land Trust. Before his move to Oregon, Martin held the position of Director of Administrative Services for the city of Huntington Beach in California. Martin and his wife, Roxie, have three children and live in Corvallis.

“We welcome Suzanne and Clay and their wealth of relevant experience to CSC,” said Martha Lyon, CSC’s Executive Director. “Both our new directors have the talent to help their departments grow to new heights.”
