Bridges Out of Poverty is a powerful model for economic and social change, sustainability, and stability, and inspires innovative solutions in those looking to counter poverty and its impact at all levels in a community.

“I am honored to join the Moffat County United Way team as the new Community Impact Coordinator,” said Wilson. “It is such a privilege to be able to work with an organization designed to positively impact the people in our community.”

Wilson attended college at New Mexico State University, studying Criminal Justice, and Colorado Northwestern Community College, studying Early Childhood Education. She worked in the community for a number of years, most recently working for Moffat County Department of Human Services.

Stillion joined the MCUW team in February and will coordinate activities and support the implementation of the community impact programming in Moffat County in order to improve the quality of living for individuals/families, organizations, and the community.

“I am very excited to be working for United Way as the Community Impact Program Assistant. I love helping people! I am looking forward to working for an organization that not only makes a positive impact on people lives but provides them with tools and resources to help them overcome challenges,” Stillion said.
