Community Celebration–thanks to all

The Celebration on April 22 was a great event. It had good music, tasty food and noteworthy celebrities–all as promised. But it had something even better–it had community. Many organizations came together to make the day possible. Folks from every walk of life attended and took a moment to realize that we are all here, living and working together, caring about one another.

Many thanks to all who were present, to those who worked to make it possible and to the folks who shared their stories/photographs to be celebrated.

Board news

Boulder Outreach for Homeless Overflow (BOHO) has today announced that Anne Doyle has stepped down from her position of Chair of the Board of Directors. Ms. Doyle has provided visionary leadership to BOHO in its first two years of full-scale operation. She will continue as a member of the BOHO board, as director of BOHO’s emerging program, Medical Respite Boulder (MRB), and as a member of BOHO’s Executive Committee.

Ms. Doyle said, “BOHO has achieved many goals in its first two years as it has become a sustainable, long-term source of care for Boulder’s homeless community. I look forward to leading MRB as it develops.”

BOHO also announces that William Sweeney, who is currently serving as a member of the BOHO board, as BOHO Treasurer, and as a member of BOHO’s Executive Committee, has been appointed as Chair for an interim term while a search is conducted for a long-term successor to Ms. Doyle.

Mr. Sweeney said, “I am honored to serve BOHO in this new capacity, leading BOHO through the remainder of the 2011-2012 Emergency Warming Center (EWC) season as well as the launch of the MRB program.”

BOHO also announces that BOHO directors Jacob Kuhns and Greg Wright, who had each served three-year terms since BOHO’s formation, have stepped down, and that Kym Dray has been appointed as a director of BOHO for a three-year term.

Ms. Dray said, “I hope to support the continuing development of BOHO’s EWC and MRB programs, which fill gaps in shelter and care for Boulder’s homeless community”.
