Andrew Winter selected for Achieving Excellence Program

NeighborWorks America is proud to announce that Andrew Winter, Executive Director of Twin Pines Housing in White River Junction is one of 45 leaders selected for the NeighborWorks Achieving Excellence Program, conducted at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

 

The NeighborWorks Achieving Excellence Program, made possible in part by support from our generous sponsor the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, is an 18-month program that provides executives with the skills to advance their organizations’ performance. Each participant identifies and clearly defines a specific challenge critical to their organization’s success then spends the program addressing that challenge.

 

“I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to grow my leadership skills and the effectiveness of Twin Pines Housing,” said Winter. “Developing affordable housing and providing residents with the supports they need to stay healthy and housed holds constant challenges. Responding nimbly to the changing landscape is vital.”

 

The only comprehensive training of its kind, Achieving Excellence includes three formal sessions at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, as well as one-on-one executive coaching and intensive peer learning.  The program kicked off at Harvard University Sept. 11-15, and three additional meetings are planned across the country. Between academic sessions, participants will actively work on a clearly-defined goal critical to their organization’s success and will be working closely with their executive coach and peer group.

“The Achieving Excellence Program gives leaders the tools to build stronger organizations—more engaged and results-oriented staff and board members working to increase their impact in the communities they serve,” said Christina Deady, senior director of leadership and workforce development at NeighborWorks America

Achieving Excellence has graduated nearly 400 executive directors, CEOs and other senior leaders since the program began in 2002. Independent evaluations have shown astounding results for organizations that have participated in this program.

In an impact evaluation of a recent class of the NeighborWorks Achieving Excellence Program, 72 percent created positive change in their communities, 77 percent raised staff performance and morale, and 100 percent improved organizational strength and results. For more information about the NeighborWorks Achieving Excellence Program, go to www.neighborworks.org/ae.

Twin Pines Housing began construction at Tracy Street in West Lebanon on Monday, July 23rd with the demolition of two houses on the property. Construction will continue over the course of the next year.

Community Chips in to Prepare Parkhurst for Residents

When Twin Pines Housing experienced cost overruns late in the renovations of the building at 10 Parkhurst Street, the Upper Valley community stepped in to help. Several generous donors, including The Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation, and Peter and Jane McLaughlin, stepped in to cover the majority of the increased expense, but there was still work to be done. That’s when COVER Home Repair offered to organize groups to paint the living spaces for residents. Over the course of three days, over 40 volunteers, including folks from the Cover community, Mascoma Bank, Hypertherm, Geokon, Lyme Computer Systems, Kinney Pike Insurance, and Twin Pines Housing will help give the walls a fresh coat of paint. Lebanon Paint & Decorating, owned by Shawn Hickey and Tom Evans, provided significant support for the project.

CDFA Awards Funding to Twin Pines Housing and Lebanon Opera House

The New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority (CDFA) announced on June 19th that it has awarded $4 million in tax credits to nonprofits throughout New Hampshire. The funds will have a significant impact on initiatives that advance local community economic development goals, capacity building for the New Hampshire nonprofit ecosystem and technical assistance to support economic development across the state.

Projects receiving tax credits are addressing critical needs in the Granite State, from providing increased access to quality, affordable childcare to downtown revitalization and developing affordable, workforce housing.

“Our tax credit awardees have demonstrated a strong commitment to delivering programs and services vital to New Hampshire communities that further enhance economic development, downtown revitalization, as well as affordable housing and childcare, and more,” commented Katy Easterly Martey, Executive Director, CDFA. “The Tax Credit Program is uniquely structured to enable effective, reliable deployment of public and private resources to our nonprofit partners. The result is the creation of long-lasting public-private partnerships that achieve critical local initiatives that enable our communities to be more resilient, vibrant places people want to work, live and visit.”

“As we continue on our mission to strengthen communities throughout the Granite State, we look forward to growing our impact with new programs that are responsive to our partner’s needs, the evolving investment world and the increasing demand from businesses looking for more ways to invest in their local communities,” continued Ms. Easterly Martey.

Twin Pines Housing received two awards. $250,000 in tax credits have been awarded for the creation of a community building at the Village at Crafts Hill. The building will provide much needed space for programming and community gathering, as well as an accessible laundry facility for the nearly 200 residents. “As we have introduced support services to the residents at Crafts Hill since taking ownership in 2015, the need for a dedicated programming area has grown,” said Andrew Winter, Executive Director. “We look forward to creating this essential resource over the next year.” Twin Pines also received $29,094 in L5 Capacity Building tax credit funds to support a strategic planning process.

Lebanon Opera House received $155,000 in tax credits to purchase a sound system and a new digital projector. The investment in equipment will enable the organization to provide increased access to arts and culture in downtown Lebanon, which will directly impact the local economy. “With a permanently installed sound system, LOH will move one step closer to becoming the Upper Valley’s premier location to experience consistent, quality live music,” said Lebanon Opera House Executive Director Joe Clifford. “The addition of a high-end digital projector affords LOH an opportunity to return its roots as a movie house and support the growing demand for multimedia live performances.”
