OHRA - Options for Helping Residents of Ashland

Mission:

OHRA helps low income people build better lives. By offering access to social service resources, as well as hope, we encourage those in need on the path to self-sufficiency.

Core programs are: 1) the Ashland Community Resource Center, providing economically distressed people help in avoiding eviction, navigating social services, securing employment, and numerous other requests; 2) the Laundry and Shower Trailer and 3) managing both the Ashland Winter Shelter and periodic Emergency Warming Centers.

Description:

We need to add financial expertise to our board. While we have members with financial acumen, we lack a board member with a CPA. This board may be invited to serve as our Treasurer, and will be instrumental in assisting with financial due diligence in general and specifically related to shelter properties.

We are open to all who have an interest in our mission and supporting an organization positioned for growth. We are eager to enrich our board by recruiting more women and people of diverse backgrounds.
