July 2021 – The Center for Nonprofit Advancement has recognized the exceptional leadership of the Carpenter’s Shelter Board of Directors with the 2021 Board Leadership Award! We are so proud that our hard-working Board is receiving this prestigious recognition for demonstrating “outstanding leadership, community support, and responsiveness to the people and communities it serves”. Carpenter’s Shelter will receive a $10,000 grant, community exposure, and training opportunities for the Board of Directors. In recent years, our Board has led Carpenter’s Shelter through the extensive New Heights redevelopment project and capital campaign, formalized our commitment to racial equity, created the Innovation Fund, and of course, navigated a pandemic — all while continuing to house and support people in our community facing homelessness. “Being named as the 2021 Board Leadership Award Winner is affirmation that the hard work the Board has done over the last five years has been well worth it,” states Edith Bullard, Carpenter’s Board Chair. We greatly appreciate this tremendous honor!
