I have been a board member of LEAHC for over 10 years. I left the boar
when we were out of town for a year, but have started a second term. Along the way I have served as president and currently am vice president. I have watched LEAHC grow from a new group providing emergency housing, two year temporary housing and help with specific housing and food needs while struggling to find the necessary financial support to an organization which is now receiving United Way funding for specific projects, has at least 3 major fund raising events during the year, and is on much sounder financial footing.
LEAHC has also changed and expanded housing help over the years.
It has a great staff who all pitch in and are willing to change assignments as needed. LEAHC is now a leader in cooperative housing ventures in Lenawee County, working well with other non profit organizations.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching this organization help the homeless in this community and as our community has experienced over 15%unemployment watched the agency find ways to helop more people with limited resources by networking with churches and other groups in an effort to find help for as many people as possible wtihin LEAHC guidelines.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

wave a magic wand and have unlimited funds to help all who need help. Since that isn't possible, I would look at what we have, what is needed, and working with the board and LEAHC staff add or drop programs to best fullfill our mission.

I have been a board member of LEAHC for 3 years now and have enjoyed getting to know the organization and the community. LEAHC is an organization that is enriching lives by supplying those who are in need with housing and programs that will maintain their success in the future. I have been the Co-Chair for fundraising in the past and now i am working in other areas on the board.

It's been a joy and a humbling experience all at the same time that is an inspiration to me at the tenacity and determination that is prevalent in the organization and its community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would want to try and help more people.
