The League of Women Voters’ Lunch with a Leader will feature Ellen Morris Bond the executive director of Self-Help, Inc. on Thursday, July 11, at 11:40 a.m. in Mesa Library. This monthly event is open to the entire community.
Bond graduated from University of New Mexico with a degree in English and then earned her masters in community development from University of California-Davis. She has lived in northern N.M. for 35 years. Currently she, her husband and daughter live in Pojoaque.
She became interested in the nonprofit service world while working as a Vista Volunteer from 1978-1981. The Cerro Grande Fire in 2000 brought new challenges to Los Alamos and gave Self Help an opportunity to be of service to the families who lost their homes.
During that period, Bond was asked to be a full-time employee and then became the executive director in 2001. She has broad experience in case work, advocacy, case management, resource development and extensive experience in receiving and managing public and private funding.
Bond will talk to the group about needs and issues in northern New Mexico, as well as the history and what Self Help does for our community.
To order a lunch, call Karyl Ann Armbruster at 661-6605 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org after July 1.
