We offer fun, challenging and rewarding work in both policy and operations issues as we transition from a “mom and pop” operation to a “Business with Heart.” Our needs include a lawyer, a fundraising expert, and a person with experience working with individuals with disabilities. If you have two hours a week on average to commit to making a difference to individuals with disabilities, and want to experience the rewards that come with giving to others, please give Nancy Wilkins a call 505-858-3163.
