Director of Development
Evelyn Polcari joined the Headstrong Project in early 2012 as the Director of Development to spearhead fundraising, event planning, corporate sponsorship and administrative management. Evelyn began her career on Wall Street thirty years ago. She was one of the first women and Hispanics to become a member of the New York Stock Exchange. During this period, she worked at Goldman Sachs, Donaldson Lufkin, Oppenheimer and Co., and Blumenthal Securities. Upon leaving Wall Street, she turned to philanthropic and service work. Over the years, she established a focus on issues involving children, young adults and mental illness. She also works as a Court Appointed Special Advocate and translator for Hispanic children in the foster care system. Evelyn is thrilled to bring her passion and experience to the Headstrong Project and to our veterans.
