STILL GROWING...

The Rotary Club of Greater Jamestown AM was privileged to induct new member Kirsten Vincent into Rotary on May 11th.  The ceremony was conducted by Don Ray, Membership Chair.
 
Kirsten is the Director of Respite Services for Housing Options Made Easy, a non-profit organization established in 1990 as a grassroots organization, operated by and for individuals with mental health issues, to provide supportive housing and advocacy services.  In Jamestown, the organization's presence is felt as Eagles Nest, a respite house.  At Eagle's Nest, in addition to respite housing (typically a five day stay), peer counseling is offered to help individuals work through some of the issues they are experiencing. 
 
Kirsten resides in Randolph with her husband and three children - all of which have been attending the University of New York at Fredonia - with one graduating this month.
