Before moving to Minnesota, she worked for the neighborhood development agency in Boston and ran the Washington, D.C., office of Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis.

The last Hennepin County commissioner to step down midterm was Mark Stenglein, who resigned in June 2012. The county didn’t hold a special election to replace him, and former state Sen. Linda Higgins was elected to his seat off the November ballot.

Dorfman will step into the St. Stephen’s job on March 3.

St. Stephen’s, located at 2309 Nicollet Av. S., provides direct services to homeless residents and reported $12 million in revenue for the most recent fiscal year ending last June. Most of that money, almost $9 million, came from government grants, including almost $3 million from the county.

St. Stephen’s started 40 years ago at its namesake Catholic Church in Minneapolis. The organization helps people find shelter, affordable housing and jobs and works for systemic change to fight homelessness. The services were incorporated as a nonprofit independent of the church in 2002.
