With this letter, I wanted to let all of our wonderful supporters know that I am retiring in early 2018. When I came to NeighborWorks Great Falls nearly 15 years ago, my plan was to stay until 2018 and then yield this wonderful job to the next Executive Director. The Board of Directors, specifically the Transition Committee, is working with Third Sector Company to assure a smooth transition to the next Executive Director.
My experience at NeighborWorks has been wonderful for every single one of those 15 years. To see our homeowners succeed and build wealth for future generations, to watch the joy of a family moving into a quality apartment, to help community residents grow into leaders, to experience the changes in our neighborhoods – these are the rewards of leading NeighborWorks.
I have so many to thank – the NeighborWorks board for their vision and leadership; our staff for their hard work and love of mission; the volunteers who raise money, build houses and help in the office; our supporters who believe in our mission and contribute to our annual campaign, make endowment gifts or name us in their wills and finally to the neighborhood residents who love their neighborhoods as much as we do.
To everyone who has helped build this incredibly impactful organization over the past 37 years, pat yourself on the back and know that you are a tremendous part of building a better Great Falls.
Sheila Rice, Executive Director, 2003-2018
