President’s Report – JONAH (Joining Our Neighbors Advancing Hope)
JONAH obtains new office space in downtown Eau Claire!
Effective September 1, 2017, JONAH has new digs at 307 S. Farwell, Suite 202, in Eau Claire. We are sharing a large office space (each having our own room) with Citizen Action Organizing Cooperative and Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters. We each have our own office within that space, as well as a large reception/meeting area. The landlord has a music store on the lower level, so we are serenaded at times. It’s a lovely, brightly lit, roomy space which gives us a presence in the ever growing, revitalizing, Eau Claire downtown. We support collaboration in sharing resources!
JONAH recently received a grant from the Taman Foundation in Eau Claire and Forward Community Investments who recognized the work of the Immigration Task Force and EXPO. Thank you to both for recognizing the importance of our work!
It is a good time to recognize JONAH’s growth as we celebrate our 10th Anniversary on Sunday, November 12, 4-6:30pm. The celebration is to be held at the Oxford Children’s Theater- Music, food, silent auction, and a covenanting event will recognize current and new members, as well as leadership throughout the 10 years of our operation! Tickets are only $25 and will be available online. Hope to see you in November!
