Grand Forks' homeless shelter will have a new director next month.

The Northlands Rescue Mission has named Sue Shirek its next executive director. She will take over next month, according to a press release from outgoing director Nancy Andrews.

Andrews, who served as interim director for the mission since last June, previously told the Herald she would be helping a new director take over the job this month.

Shirek was a Grand Forks police officer for 26 years, including time as a neighborhood resource officer and school resource officer, before retiring in 2013. She recently served as executive director of Care and Share, a homeless shelter in Crookston.

Shirek currently sits on the board of directors of Third Street Clinic and Prairie Harvest Mental Health.
