Margaret Flores McCabe, Executive Director
Just three years ago, Margaret Flores McCabe was hired as Executive of VIDAS. When she started, the organization had 4 employees, one location and a 150K budget. Today, the organization has 14 employees, 5 locations and a $1M budget. Under Margaret’s leadership, VIDAS earned recognition by USCIS and is now approved to secure contracts with the California Department of Social Services. Margaret has grown VIDAS through innovative partnerships with other nonprofits and has expanded geographically through partnerships with two community colleges.
In 2019, Margaret (with her team) wrote the Secure Families Collaborative proposal to the Sonoma County. VIDAS and Catholic Charities were both selected to lead the Collaborative in 2019. The Collaborative is a unique service model that now includes legal services, mental health services and wraparound social services to undocumented immigrants in Sonoma County.
In 2020, Margaret was appointed Director of the Sonoma Secure Families Collaborative and VIDAS is now sole program and fiscal lead of this Collaborative.
Prior to joining VIDAS, Margaret worked 20 years as a successful business owner and real estate investor. She has a B.A. in Political Science from U.C. Davis and a M.ed from San Jose State University.
