After nearly 20 years of service at Community Action of Greater Indianapolis, I have decided it’s time for me to retire effective Wednesday, November 15, 2017. My journey has been amazing as a contractor to interim executive director and for the past nine years as President.

It’s been a humbling and rewarding experience serving my community alongside colleagues like you. I have appreciated my time with Community Action and give gratitude to all our partners who supported and shared our mission to those we serve.

There’s no higher calling than to serve. After taking some time off, I would be willing to consider serving this great community through civic activities.

The Board of Directors have appointed two internal staff to co-direct the organization until such time a new president is vetted and named.
