New and improved

New and Improved… As Sam Waterston said, “There is no problem that is not improved by effort, and no effort that is too paltry to be worth undertaking.”  I’ve been thinking about our long vision statement for some time and began a conversation with my Board of Directors late last year.  We had several...

Mural and Values

Sometimes you come to work on a Monday morning and you’re thinking about what your day is going to be like, maybe what’s your first meeting or your last meeting or what you left behind at home or traffic or whatever.  And sometimes you’re lucky enough to round the corner as your approach the door and see...

Service–What calls us

I’ve been thinking a lot about love these past few months.  In my naiveté, I always believed love could get you through.  It’s gotten me through my toughest times because someone loved me and held me up so it led me to believe it worked for everyone.  This year, I’ve met some folks, on a deep personal...

The Shutdown…imagine

Imagine you work for the Federal government because you thought it was a secure job and a way to make a good living for your family.  Imagine you are the sole support for your family while your husband goes to college.  Imagine your child needs a prescription.  Imagine you’re going to work again today...

Shatter the Silence

Shatter the Silence…http://www.unitedwayofjacksoncounty.org/shatterthesilence/ Today is a big day. It has taken a long time to get here. More than two years ago, a Big Idea student said to me, “I don’t care how many of us you graduate, how about you keep us all alive.” I was dumbstruck by the statement. The young...

Our Future Home!

What an amazing time United Way is in!  We are purchasing a permanent home for the United Way!  I don’t think we ever dreamed of this or maybe more truthfully, I didn’t dream of this.  When I first started here in 1996, we rented and had always rented.  When the economy took a sharp downturn, our board had the great...

Warm Smile

A warm smile is the universal language of kindness. William Arthur Ward Happy Holidays! Finally sitting down to blog at work on December 22.  Missing wishing those who celebrate Hanukkah a very happy and joyous one because of my vacation!  I hope the season of light was beautiful for you.  For those about to...

Guest Blog — Lisa Stauffer

While on vacation in September, my husband and I stopped in Rock Springs, Wyoming to take a stretch break. I was taking pictures of a very old building, and a lady approached me asking if I was associated with United Way because of my Day of Caring T-shirt. She introduced herself as Kelly, a United Way employee. They...

Guest Blog, Deelia Warner — Parking Lots

9/29/2017 It’s surprising how much time I spend in parking lots.  I suppose it shouldn’t be a surprise given how much I drive for my job, traveling to & fro Cave Junction, Grants Pass, Medford area, Brookings, Crescent City, etc.  I can tell you the best lots for shade in the summer, relaxing spots to eat lunch...
