Review for Friendship Place, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I remember when I first joined the board, six years ago. We were barely scraping by, and I dreaded the financial updates at the board meetings because they always seemed so dire. In the past four years, under the able leadership of Jean-Michel Giraud, our executive director, our finances have stabilized, our programs have grown and our staff morale has improved. There is so much more to do--and now we are working hard to develop an employment program for those consumers who are ready for it. It's very staff-intensive, both in terms of finding employers willing to hire our folks, and helping our consumers prepare themselves for employment. I feel confident that we can succeed in this important new area of focus.

Role:  Board Member & I've advised the executive director and executive committee on personnel issues.
