Franklin Grand Isle Regional Council Recap – November 2018
The council has been in the process of hiring a new regional coordinator for the past few months. We are excited to share that the position has been filled by Elizabeth Hamel. Liz has been in direct service work for the past 5 ½ years, specifically in early childhood mental health and early special education. Liz’s experience has highlighted for her how effective and supportive systems, home, and community-based services can be for children and families. Liz has lived in Vermont her whole life and is passionate about supporting all Vermonters in their paths to health, wellness and community. Please extend a warm welcome to Liz as she transitions into her new role December 3rd.
