Homeless Advocate Doug Sawyer Retires from United Way of San Diego County


This month, Doug Sawyer will retire from being president and CEO of United Way of San Diego County (United Way). His many years of leadership have resulted in significant growth and transformation for United Way, and we congratulate him on a decade of service and advocacy on the fight to end homelessness.

We presented Doug with a plaque to commemorate his work and congratulate him on his retirement.

It was recently announced that Kevin Crawford will be the new United Way president and CEO. Crawford has served as fire chief for the Carlsbad Fire Department for the past 11 years, and has served on United Way’s board of directors for five years.

We are grateful to Doug for all his efforts and excited to work with Kevin to end homelessness!
