Maureen Hallagan

2021 Chicago Peace Fellow
COO, Marillac St. Vincent Family Services

Maureen has a Masters in Social Work and has worked on the West side for over 35 years. Active in the community, she has participated in many programs that promote the strengths of the communities and people we serve. Maureen remains humbled by her staff and the community in all of the positive things that occur every day in an area where the media only covers negative events. She had the honor on serving on many committees, networks and groups that promote safety and opportunities to give a hand up to people so they can succeed in their own personal goals. Maureen is a 5 year cancer survivor. Maureen is the 5th of 12 children. She and her husband, Steve, have been married for 38 years and they have 3 adult children: Rachel, Jessica and Zachary. Her daughters are married and she has 2 grandsons named Cameron and Theo. Maureen is very close to her family, including her extended family.
