WESTBY, Wis. (WKBT) - Couleecap, Inc. has a new Executive Director.
Hetti Brown started with the organization after long-time director, Grace Jones, retired in July after 39 years of service, according to a news release.
Brown comes to Couleecap from the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services, Division of Public Health, where she was the executive director of the Office of Animal Welfare. In that role, Brown led her team to develop social service programs for pet owners with low income and to address issues concerning community health and welfare. Brown also worked closely with state and county lawmakers to author and pass laws establishing new or reformed state services.
As the new director of Couleecap, Brown will focus on meeting emerging issues surrounding poverty. “Couleecap is the thread that ties public, private, and community resources together to ensure poverty is addressed from all sides,” states Brown. “We understand that a strong community results from strong families and individuals. Every person should have an equal opportunity to develop new skills, earn a living wage, and provide for their families.”
