Her goal is to bring additional funding into the agency as well as develop new community programs in order to make a difference in the lives of others.

Discovering new funding opportunities is the primary objective of the Resource Development department. Each year we research hundreds of opportunities seeking additional funding to enhance our current programs. We not only search for enhancement funds, but also funding for new programs in general. The diversification of our agency provides the opportunity to implement new programs as they become available and fit within the overall mission of SWHRA. The ultimate goal of the Resource Development department is to bring additional funding to the agency so that we have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those within the communities we serve.
