|On Tuesday, October 24, our lunch program will be presentations from two local non-profits:|
Christa was born into an outdoorsy, traveling family in the Pacific Northwest – evergreens, mountains, and crystal cold lakes are a part of her DNA. Christa spent 11 years living overseas in Hong Kong working for an outdoor education company followed by a one-year travel sabbatical in Central and South America with her hubby and two kids. Having recently settled in Bend, Oregon, Christa is loving putting roots down and creating community in the high desert. She’s an active member of the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Search & Rescue team and an avid skier, biker, paddler, yogi, and trail runner.
Laura Handy has been working as a Executive Director at Heart of Oregon Corps for 18 years. Heart of Oregon Corps’ six programs engage 225 youth annually in meaningful, growth-filled workforce development and educational opportunities that help address the negative impacts of poverty. They primarily serve low-to-moderate income Opportunity Youth ages 16-24 who are disconnected from school and work but are ready to thrive when given adequate support. With the goal of career readiness, HOC programs provide training in conservation, construction, childcare, and customer service. Since its inception over 20 years ago, HOC has grown into a nonprofit leader with programs and projects in Deschutes, Crook, Jefferson, and northern Klamath counties, including the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs.
