My name is Kimberly Sanders.  I am the Special Projects Coordinator for Curry Community Health.  I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and thank all of you for the work and time you dedicate to the prevention of homelessness.  The support of community partners that make up the Curry Homeless Coalition is key in combating homelessness in Curry County.

My goals and aspirations align with the focus on homelessness in Curry County especially among our youth population.  Although new to this community I have received a warm welcome from many of the members of the community, and I feel honored to be the newest member of this esteemed board.

My experience includes prevention, nursing, acute care, home health & hospice, alcohol & drug treatment, mental health, health care administration, marketing and outreach.

I look forward to representing and working with the Curry Homeless Coalition.

Thank you

Kimberly Sanders
