Happy New (Fiscal) Year! My name is Erin McKenney. I am the new executive director of Just Neighbors and am very excited to be a part of this amazing organization. As I am acclimating to the new position, it has quickly become evident that Allison Rutland Soulen left things in great shape. This is truly a wonderful ministry and great culture with fabulous staff and incredible volunteers. I am sure that many of you came to know and support Just Neighbors because of Allison. I know I did. My hope is that you have grown to appreciate the mission and will continue to support Just Neighbors, regardless of who sits in this chair. The work done here is important and impactful as you can tell by the lead story in this newsletter. I look forward to all that lies before us – whether it’s as large as immigration reform or a new “dream act,” or continuing to change the lives of 800 or so clients (and their families) every year. I thank you for your continued support and look forward to meeting you soon!
