United Way of Collier and the Keys is thrilled to announce the redesign of its programs team, bolstering its commitment to uplifting communities and providing vital support to those in need. This strategic restructuring aims to fortify the nonprofit's impact on the community, focusing on more direct assistance, comprehensive case management, disaster response and sustainable, long-term solutions.
Leading this dynamic team is Ashley Jones, a seasoned professional with a passion for community development and a track record of driving positive change. With her extensive experience, Ms. Jones is poised to steer the United Way towards even greater heights of effectiveness and outreach.
Frances Ribot assumes the pivotal role of Director of Community Impact, bringing a wealth of knowledge and a history of successful program management. Her vision and dedication will be instrumental in aligning the organization's initiatives with the evolving needs of the community. Assisting Ms. Ribot in this critical mission is Carolina Heiser, whose expertise in community engagement and strategic planning will be invaluable in executing the team’s initiatives with precision and care. Tiffany Pellicier will serve as Monroe County’s sole case manager, helping people in need across the Upper and Lower Keys.
The redesigned programs team is poised to elevate United Way of Collier and the Keys' impact through a multi-faceted approach:
1. Direct Assistance: Providing immediate support (211, KeysHelp.org) to individuals and families facing challenges. 2. Comprehensive Case Management: A personalized approach will address the unique circumstances of each individual, connecting them with the right resources and services.
3. Disaster Response: We’ve been there to help you after COVID-19, Hurricanes Irma and Ian, and the team will continue to be there. The goal is to ensure that affected individuals, families and communities receive timely and effective aid in the short-term and throughout their long-term recovery.
"We are incredibly excited about the enhanced capabilities of our programs team and the potential for even greater impact in Collier and Monroe Counties," said Tiffani Mensch, President and CEO of United Way of Collier and the Keys.
This strategic restructuring is a testament to United Way of Collier and the Keys' unwavering commitment to building stronger, more resilient communities. With the expanded programs team, the organization is poised to tackle the most pressing issues with renewed vigor and determination.
