We really are “friends helping neighbors”
Our Board of Directors are a diverse group of community leaders. From professionals, entrepreneurs, police & fire, a former Mayor, homemakers and local volunteers our diverse expertise, talents and contacts come together to create awareness and raise funds for the Paiute Center.
Partners for Paiute has been apart of our family since 1997 when my husband Steve began his 6 years on the Board of Directors. I was able to see the early days of the Center and all the changes and growth that it went through. Ten years later in 2007 I joined the Board. I am inspired everyday by the dedication and loving care the staff on campus show the families of the Paiute Neighborhood.
Our 2014-2015 Board Officers
I first learned about Paiute Neighborhood Center in 2010 when I became involved in tutoring one day a week. I really enjoyed working with the kids and seeing them grow. After completing Scottsdale Leadership Class 26 in 2012 and serving on their Board of Directors from 2012-2014, I was ready to return to helping children learn and develop. I feel being involved with the Partners for Paiute Board, I can have a positive impact on their lives.
I came of age in Scottsdale. Many of my fondest memories are about places and happenings in the downtown Scottsdale area. When I found an opportunity to help the community in an area where I grew up, I was quick to offer to bring my skill set and heart to this organization. As a life-long volunteer, I was looking for an opportunity to give back something to the community that nurtured me. I found that opportunity with Partners for Paiute. I also found a group of people who are passionate about this community, committing time and resources to making the Paiute neighborhood a better place for the children and families who live there.
I joined the Partners for Paiute Board because I wanted to become more involved in my local community and I believe that the Paiute Neighborhood Center offers invaluable services to the surrounding community. As a long-time resident of Scottsdale and a graduate of Scottsdale Leadership, I’ve come to know that our community needs a support system. Partners for Paiute is dedicated to helping meet the human and social service needs to the benefit of the Center and the entire community.
I joined the board because Paiute touches families. We live and spend a lot of time in the areas surrounding Paiute, and I want to show my children the importance of giving back to our community.
I am passionate about community health and promoting healthy living. I joined Partners for Paiute to learn more about community needs, improve the quality of services, and to serve as an advisor that supports the activities and growth of the Paiute campus.
Ben joined Partners for Paiute because over the last few years he has donated his time to other nonprofits but was looking for something more consistent. He has always had a passion for kids and wanted to find a way to help kids and their families in his local community have a possibility at a better future that they might not have gotten. This is why he joined Partners For Paiute in 2015 because of the work they have done in helping the Scottsdale community with social, recreational and education services since 1995.
