Meet the Dedicated Team behind Padmission!
We are Driven to End Homelessness
Padmission was founded by Michael Shore and Kevin McKee, combining Mike's decades of experience working to end homelessness and Kevin's experience building enterprise grade software.
CEO / Co-Founder
Michael Shore is an advocate and practitioner of ending homelessness for individuals and families through permanent housing solutions. As CEO of HOM, Inc., Mike has over 25 years of experience in operating rental assistance programs; including permanent supportive housing, rapid rehousing, housing choice vouchers, and HUD-VASH programs. HOM, Inc., partners with nonprofit and public agencies to stably house over 2,400 formerly homeless households throughout Maricopa County.
Mike co-founded Padmission in 2019 as a solution to the needs of his housing program participants, landlords and community partners in making the housing location and search process simpler and faster. A closet technologist, Mike enjoys leveraging technology to make processes more effective and efficient to improve outcomes and put the attention of team members where it belongs – on delivering high quality program administration and customer service to those he serves.
Mike served as Director of Operations for the 100,000 Homes Campaign, a sector-building movement that helped to transform the nation’s response to chronic homelessness from 2012-2014. Mike has a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Arizona State University. He also proudly serves as Chair of the board of directors for the Crisis Response Network, which operates the crisis and 2-1-1 lines and administers the HMIS in central and northern Arizona.
Kevin McKee has been building and supporting enterprise grade websites throughout his entire career and is tremendously excited to bring his talents and expertise to help end homelessness. As the CEO of Intellow LLC, Kevin and his team provide business consulting, software development, and additional IT support for a variety of clients.
Kevin is a hands-on technology leader and software developer who built web applications at Citibank and ADT before he left to become a Business & Technology Consultant. He takes pride in his ability to lead large, diverse teams of technology professionals to deliver incredible web products. Kevin has led teams of over 100 project team members and has directly managed budgets of over $7 million per year.
Kevin feels a personal connection to his work at Padmission. Growing up with a single, disabled mother, Kevin and his sister were lucky enough to avoid experiencing homelessness thanks to his wonderful and generous grandparents. Kevin wants Padmission to help those who don't have the same support network.
