Annual Report 2022-2023

This fiscal year was one of transition with intentional discussion and action focused on a change in leadership and strengthening board engagement.
It goes without saying our team did not let any of this disrupt services and kept their focus on meeting the needs of our community.  

Since 2021, board and staff (also some partners) were aware that I would step down this fiscal year commencing the end of my contract. Please know there were many reasons I made this decision. None more important than moving out of the way for a new, fresh and energetic leader for what is yet to come for El Centro.

When I entered the doors in 2013, I concentrated on building a staff structure that could develop and grow, while centering community and creating a business model focused on sustainability with a cultural and linguistic response for our social impact.

We met this challenge and by the time you read this message, I will have left the agency. The future is in good hands with Erica who has spent her career passionately serving in a variety of positions. Kelli adds the expertise of operational policies and practices. They will be supported by a team with expertise and passion to continue the valuable services provided by El Centro.

To the best experience of my career and to all staff, board, community, funders, and partners, I thank you for all your support over my 10 and 1/2 years of service. Continue that support for the new leadership, staff and board, but most importantly for our community!
