meet our board

We have a hands-on board. They meet monthly on third Mondays from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. All board members are highly engaged in fundraising and all members are donors at a level they are able, committing to also give or bring in the equivalent of at least one SHERO ($240) annually. Board members also serve on committees, participate in various fund raising events and other programs throughout the year. We can have up to 12 board members and will be looking to add new members in 2021. If interested in serving, please speak with the Executive Director for a nomination form.
