Tell us a bit about what you appreciate about them as an RCB:

The amount of behind the scenes collaborative barrier breaking he does is amazing and so beneficial. He works with youth, folks in need, unhoused. You name it and he probably has a hand in it. He volunteers on many boards and projects. The point in time count, ORCCA Board, AYA, and more. He has pallette shelters for transitional housing. He works with youth to empower them.
