A Message From Our President
I’m writing to let you know that I’m taking the next step in my professional career as Easterseals NH’s President & CEO effective on October 31. I will step down as the President of Families in Transition – New Horizons President at the end of September.
Starting with five women and their children in 1991 at a property on Spruce Street in Manchester, NH, we are now one of the largest homeless services organizations in New Hampshire. On any given night we provide shelter and housing to nearly 600 people in Manchester, Concord, Dover, and Wolfeboro, NH. We provide food, shelter, and a full spectrum of services and tools for people to create their own success.
I’m leaving Families in Transition – New Horizons at a good time. Thanks to you all, the financial health of the organization is strong. The Board of Directors is engaged. I have great faith in the Families in Transition – New Horizons leadership team as many of them have been the foundation of the organization for many years and are fully capable to continue the momentum we’ve built, together.
Our Board of Directors has appointed three members of our leadership team; Lisa Allard, Chief Financial Officer; Cathy Kuhn, PhD, Vice President of Research and Training; and Stephanie Savard, Chief Operating Officer to assume leadership of the organization on an interim basis beginning in October. Together, they have 55 years of service to the organization!
Although I am embarking on a new direction, I will always seek ways in which the nonprofit community can work together to resolve the needs and challenges facing families and individuals in our great state.
