Earlier this summer, we announced that we received an extension on our McNally Family Grant, allowing us to expand and build our staff! As we look to open the Community Outreach Houses, we know we will need staff to oversee them as well as people excited to come use them! We also need year-round support with campers and HR processes. We are thrilled to be able to solve these challenges with a new staff position – Director of Community Engagement and HR.
If you are an avid reader of our newsletter, you know that Sanquise was on our summer staff this last season. We were able to get to know her better and realize the amazing gifts and talents she brings to the table both through her time as summer staff and her leadership in the Design Core Process. We have spent days working on a problem before asking Sanquise, “Do you happen to have any ideas about…?” Nearly every time, she would take out a notebook that had already identified both the problem as well as potential solutions!
She comes to us with her master’s degree from Wayne State University in Nonprofit Leadership and Management, is a member of Mt. Calvary, and has grown up in the 9th Precinct.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to Sanquise as our newest full-time Camp Restore Detroit staff member!
