Sally Bindley Millman is founder and CEO of School on Wheels in Indianapolis. Millman began School on Wheels in 2001 after hearing about a similar program in Los Angeles. She quickly learned that very little was being done to support homeless children’s education in area shelters, since shelters must focus on clients’ immediate needs. Millman set out to provide these children with important academic tools, including school supplies, homework help and mentoring.
She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Education and Social Policy from Northwestern University and a Master of Social Work from Indiana University. In addition, Sally is a graduate of the Stanley K. Lacy Executive Leadership Series. She holds many awards for her work, including the Sagamore of the Wabash and the Jefferson Award for Public Service. Sally currently serves on the board of The Patachou Foundation and is a past board president for the Family Advocacy Center. She has practiced as a school social worker and family counselor for victims of domestic violence.
