CHELAN - We at Chelan Valley Hope, a nonprofit social services agency in Chelan, are extremely happy to introduce our new Executive Director, Tamra Hively.
Tamra was born and raised in Wenatchee. She has a diverse background of nonprofit management, leadership, and has worked with a variety of individuals and families, in a counseling, case management, and social services capacity. Tamra has owned and managed her own counseling/case management agency, has served as a nonprofit executive director, and has supervised a staff of over 20 employees and volunteers. As the new leader at Chelan Valley Hope she will be focused on strengthening existing client programs, managing staff and relationships with the community and, in partnership with the Board of Directors, creating and implementing the goals and strategic plan in support of our overall mission and vision. CVH provides assistance, advocacy, and referral services to under-resourced families and individuals throughout the Greater Chelan Valley.
“I believe it is important to look at a person or situation in a systemic way. I want to understand the issues and look for a solution that works for that specific individual’s needs. I’m thrilled to be part of Chelan Valley Hope and their proactive team of motivated, caring people”, said Tamra.
Chelan Valley Hope provides short term emergency sheltering in local motels, rapid rehousing through rent assistance, homelessness prevention, utility assistance, food and fuel vouchers, and non-food pantry items such as warm coats, diapers, winter gloves and hats, and personal hygiene kits. CVH has been for 12 years and is currently contributing to the wellbeing of the most at-risk and in-need regional residents through this menu of client programming and resource referral.
Michael Gibb, Board President said, “We are very enthusiastic about Tamra Hively joining our team and we are confident that she will make significant contributions to Chelan Valley Hope. We look forward to her heart and leadership that she will bring to our clients, staff, volunteers, and the community as she supports the mission of Chelan Valley Hope, furthering positive changes in people’s lives”.
