The Friends have only one paid staff member:

RobinRobin Benedict, Program Coordinator 

The Friends are pleased to have Robin on board as our only paid staff.  With us since 2011, she brought over 20 years of Human Services job experience to our office.  She oversees all our expenditures, program analysis, grant writing and management of our volunteers.  And that’s just a few of the tasks she completes.   She’s at every one of our outreach activities on weekends, she speaks to community groups and she keeps our board on track.

 

A great cadre of Volunteers donate many hours every week to keep us going:
