Nancy Vaughan: Staff changes align for impact

(Continued)

This month, Born Learning outreach coordinators Lynn Silvey and Penny Henderson moved into the United Way office on East 5th Street from across the parking lot, where they had been housed with CAPE. This completes a six-month transition of Born Learning Connection that will help us more fully integrate our early childhood and financial stability work.

We also have the assistance of VISTA (Volunteers In Service to America) Sally Fritsche. VISTA is a federally funded program that places volunteers with nonprofit organizations for a year of service. Sally and two other VISTAs (placed with partner organizations) are working in our community for a small living stipend to help us develop the financial stability strategies. Finally, we are assisted with community projects and student engagement at Anderson University by Intern Anna Rayis.

These changes give us the ability to better connect, create and communicate positive impact across Madison County. To find out more, check out www.unitedwaymadisonco.org.

Nancy Vaughan is president of United Way of Madison County Inc. Her column appears the fourth Sunday of each month. She can be reached at n.vaughan@unitedwaymadisonco.org or 608-3061.
