About this Series: The Northwest Minnesota Foundation staff believes that we can all make a difference in our communities by stepping forward to becoming part of something bigger. This belief not only helps drive our day-to-day activities at work but is also apparent in our personal lives. This series highlights our staff’s commitment to community through their volunteer activities, those that occur outside of the traditional work day.

“For 10 years, from 2008 to 2018, I was a board member and former president and treasurer of Restore House, a “half-way house” as the term used to be called for helping to free people from their addictions and integrate them back into society without relapse.”
