Meet the dedicated team behind Padmission!
We are driven to END homelessness
Padmission was founded by Michael Shore and Kevin McKee, combining Mike’s decades of experience working to end homelessness and Kevin’s experience building enterprise grade software.
CEO/Co-Founder | Email Mike
Michael Shore is an advocate and practitioner of ending homelessness for individuals and families through permanent housing solutions. As CEO of HOM, Inc., Mike has over 25 years of experience in operating rental assistance programs, including permanent supportive housing, rapid rehousing, housing choice vouchers, and HUD-VASH programs. HOM, Inc., partners with nonprofit and public agencies to stably house over 5,000 formerly homeless households throughout Arizona.
Mike co-founded Padmission in 2019 as a solution to the needs of his housing program participants, landlords and community partners in making the housing location and search process simpler and faster. A closet technologist, Mike enjoys leveraging technology to make processes more effective and efficient to improve outcomes and put the attention of team members where it belongs – on delivering high quality program administration and customer service to those he serves.
Mike served as Director of Operations for the 100,000 Homes Campaign, a sector-building movement that helped to transform the nation’s response to chronic homelessness from 2012-2014. Mike has a bachelor’s degree in political science from Arizona State University. He also proudly serves on the board of directors for Solari Crisis and Human Services, which operates the crisis and 2-1-1 lines and administers the HMIS in central and northern Arizona.
CIO/Co-Founder | Email Kevin
Kevin McKee has been building and supporting enterprise grade websites throughout his entire career and is tremendously excited to bring his talents and expertise to help end homelessness. As the CEO of Intellow LLC, Kevin and his team provide business consulting, software development, and additional IT support for a variety of clients.
Kevin is a hands-on technology leader and software developer who built web applications at Citibank and ADT before he left to become a Business & Technology Consultant. He takes pride in his ability to lead large, diverse teams of technology professionals to deliver incredible web products. Kevin has led teams of over one hundred project team members and has directly managed budgets of over $7 million per year.
Kevin feels a personal connection to his work at Padmission. Growing up with a single, disabled mother, Kevin and his sister were lucky enough to avoid experiencing homelessness thanks to his wonderful and generous grandparents. Kevin wants Padmission to help those who don’t have the same support network.
Training and Housing Strategy Manager | Email Lizzie
Lizzie Goddard has been exploring creative solutions to complex social challenges throughout her career in addressing the crisis of homelessness in various communities. As the Training and Housing Strategy Manager at Padmission, she brings her direct experience of building a Landlord Engagement Collective in her native Nashville and advising additional cities through the process of creating similar initiatives. In her time organizing Landlord Engagement efforts in Nashville, she facilitated a 40% increase in shared housing inventory in her first 6 months, negotiating lowered housing barriers across all participating units.
Lizzie has gathered a diverse set of skills from her international work in Greece where she organized refugee aid for several years in response to the European refugee crisis, as well as supporting the housing needs of newly arrived refugees in the States. She eventually landed in the broader housing response system and has found deep meaning and motivation in her goal of creating a more efficient, compassionate system for those in crisis. She has a B.A. in psychology and an M.A. in emergency management and community resilience.
Lizzie believes change moves at the speed of trust and is honored to support communities in deepening collaboration and relationships to reduce duplication and more effectively support every person in their right to a safe and stable home.
