Meet the Team

Tim Rakow, Interim Executive Director 

David Bitler, Executive Director of The Inn Between of Longmont, Inc., has made a personal decision to leave the Inn Between. David worked diligently and with passion to advance the mission of the Inn Between as a vital housing and supportive services resource for those in need. He was an important contributor to conversations around homelessness solutions. He continuously sought to create housing opportunities amidst an affordable housing crisis and became key to driving the Micah Project forward by listening to community member concerns to develop strong and effective collaborations. He successfully established relationships with partner agencies to best serve the community and his policies strengthened our agency’s fiscal position to establish long-term stability.  The Board of Directors and staff are very grateful for David’s efforts and accomplishments during his tenure and wish him the best of luck. 

We are happy to announce that, while the Board pursues identifying the future Executive Director, our Associate Director, Tim Rakow, will assume the role.
