More about Charity:
I’m Charity Grace Mofsen. I have an educational background in sustainability, a lifelong love of Nature and I’m passionate about building up people, relationships, and communities. Originally from NC, I now call Nantucket home with my husband Michael and our sweet pup Herschel.
I currently serve on the Affordable Housing Trust because we have a housing crisis facing our island. Back in 2016, in a packed “Young Creatives” meeting, the common reason shared by the group as to why they stayed on Nantucket was overwhelmingly “Community.” That community is made up of individual people and families and is at risk of disappearing entirely if we do not take proactive steps to address our lack of affordable housing.
I also serve on the Cyrus Peirce Advisory Council and as a trustee at the Nantucket Lighthouse School. Educating tomorrow’s leaders by focusing on the development of the whole child is important to me. Nantucket is very fortunate to have a variety of educational opportunities for our youth so that families can make the right decision about what’s best for theirs.
In March of 2018, our beloved African Meeting House was defiled with racist graffiti. It sparked outrage and complete shock in our community and beyond. Almost a year later, we are still searching for answers. “This is not our Nantucket!” has been the resounding cry. And while it did happen here, as a community, we have the opportunity to decide what “Our Nantucket” really is. I want to be a voice for that.
When I’m not working, you’ll likely find me chasing sunsets, playing music with Michael and friends, or planning the next potluck where I can show off my most recently mastered Southern recipe.
Cash Bar and snacks.
