Brooke brings deep bench strength in public policy and government affairs 

February 2, 2023, Portland, OR – Central City Concern (CCC) is excited to announce its new Director of Public Policy, Brooke Goldberg. Brooke will assume her new role on February 7, 2023.   

Goldberg comes to CCC most recently from the private sector where she served as a social impact and policy consultant to a Fortune 100 client. She brings over a decade of government affairs and nonprofit experience to this role, with broad experience in the intersection of federal and state programs. She is recognized as a leading advocate for her long-standing work on behalf of military spouses and families. During her time in Washington, D.C. she advanced executive orders, legislation and policy changes for military veteran families related to healthcare, workforce development and professional licensures, and compensation and benefits. She also stood up the Prescription Medicine programs at Stop the Addiction Fatality Epidemic (S.A.F.E.) Project, where she was responsible for connecting communities with answers to the over prescription of opioids, increasing awareness of alternatives in pain management, as well as supporting increased research in prevention and treatment.   

Goldberg moved back to Portland in 2019 and has worked in campaigns and at the Oregon state legislature. Most recently, she has worked on skilling and reskilling initiatives with Google as a consultant. She earned both her Juris Doctor and Bachelor of Arts from the University of Oregon.  

“I’m most excited about being able to apply my experience and passion for people in a program that directly helps my neighbors and community,” says CCC’s New Director of Public Policy Brooke Goldberg. “CCC has an approach that recognizes the humanity in each of us - our differences, our strengths, and works to connect clients with a network of support that honors where they are in life and the struggles they’re facing. I’m excited to be a part of that.” 

“We’re thrilled to have Brooke join the CCC team.” says Sean Hubert, CCC’s Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer. “We’re facing a linked public health crisis that spans behavioral health, housing, and homelessness here in Oregon and our region is navigating the same long-term versus temporary solutions debate that’s dominant up and down the west coast.  Brooke’s depth and breadth of experience is exactly what we need to support our policymakers in making the right choices for our communities.”  

In 2016, Goldberg was named to 2016 HillVets 100 List: America’s Most Influential Veterans. She has also been a Member of Top Lobbyist Team in The Hill magazine for three consecutive years.
