2019 Year in Review
2019 was another great year for Oyster River Womenade. Thank you to everyone who has supported us in the past and those who joined us this year. Here are some of the highlights:
In 2019 we received 58 requests for financial assistance totaling $34,936. We provided $13,511.53 in financial assistance to 33 clients. A majority of our financial assistance is provided as rent or mortgage assistance. Other includes: home goods, appliances, and clothing.
Our Board has changed significantly over the past year. Long-term members have gone and new members have come on. We truly appreciate all of the work our former board members have done for our organization.
Our 2020 Board Members are:
Marie Bader (Durham)
Mary Beth Carstens (Durham)
Meridith Davidson (Durham)
Nicole Gruet-Matthews (Newmarket)
Christian Matthews (Newmarket)
Jen Sprague (Durham)
At our annual retreat in January we discussed plans on how we can improve our organization and ultimately be able to better meet the needs of our clients. We will provide updates throughout the year as we push forward on these goals. Here's to another successful year!
