Logan Ray

HOPWA Case Manager

A lifelong Indianapolis native, Logan is an alumnus of Pike High School and completed their Bachelor of Social Work at IUPUI in 2018. Logan spent three of their four years in college co-organizing student led conversations around social justice and current political climate through the IUPUI Sam H. Jones community service scholarship. This experience is where Logan realized how important it was to provide a platform for people to share their stories, to learn how to really listen to others, and to work together to make changes that affect marginalized communities.

During their undergraduate senior practicum, Logan spent a semester working in inpatient psychiatry at Eskenazi, where they discovered a passion for working with people who have mental illness and history of substance use. Logan continued to work in inpatient psych as a support specialist while working as a case manager at a day shelter. Quickly finding a niche, Logan found that pursuing their interest in working with marginalized groups, clients with dual diagnoses, and social justice makes working at Damien Center a wonderful fit to grow as a new practitioner and feel supported by a great team of staff.

In the future, Logan would like to return to school to get their Master’s in Social Work with a concentration in mental health and addictions.

Logan is passionate about working with the LGBTQ population, client advocacy, and trauma-informed approaches. Outside of work, you can find them exploring the city on their bike, planning the next road trip, hammocking in a park with a great book, or listening to Ani DiFranco and drawing at a coffee shop.
