Unity House Promotes Two Staff Members



Unity House has announced two recent promotions: Dave Warren has been promoted to service director of the organization’s Community Resources programs, and Tabitha Dunn has been named service director of Unity House’s Domestic Violence Services programs.

In his new role, Warren is responsible for oversight of Unity House’s crisis intervention; counseling; emergency food, clothing and housewares; holiday food baskets and gifts; homelessness prevention; and pregnancy care programs. Previously, he served as service director of Domestic Violence Services. An 11-year employee of Unity House, he has also served as a DV program director supervising criminal justice services and data management, as a police advocate and as a case manager and project coordinator, all in the DV services area of the organization.

Warren has developed and presented many community training programs on topics such as intimate partner violence, elder abuse, and teen dating violence.

He received his bachelor’s degree in political science and criminal justice and his master’s degree in criminal justice from the University at Albany and earned his juris doctor from Albany Law School in 2015.

Dunn first joined Unity House in 2001 to provide babysitting for children while their mothers attended counseling meetings. In her nearly 17 years with Unity House, she has held several positions, including overnight counselor, case manager, family counselor, assistant service director and now service director of DV services.

As an avid supporter of inclusion and prevention work as a key to combatting domestic and dating violence, Dunn regularly provides training and education programs at a wide range of community organizations and educational institutions. She has also presented at the American Psychological Association’s international conference on the co-morbidity of interpersonal violence, post-traumatic stress disorder and substance use.

She holds a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in mental health counseling from the University at Albany and a conditional license as a mental health counselor.
