Rainbow Village Welcomes Three New Members to its Board of Directors
Governing Board for Georgia Nonprofit Devoted to Ending Homelessness – One Family at a Time – Enhanced with the Additions of Mona Reiser Armstrong, Stephen Emert and Cathe Reams
By: Rainbow Village
Steve Emert – As Managing Partner of Emert Law Firm, Steve is proud to offer real estate closings among his practice areas. Often involved in the sale and purchase of homes, he is accustomed to helping people who have one to two homes. He believes that no one in this country should ever be homeless and that every American should have their basic needs met.
Mona Reiser Armstrong – In her role as COO of Access Education Holding Corporation – a company that owns and runs a collection of beauty and wellness schools – Mona witnessed the impact of homelessness firsthand. More than one of her students found themselves homeless but continued to come to school despite living out of their cars, couch surfing with friends or spending the night at homeless shelters. She finds that Rainbow Village's mission really resonates with her and fulfills her desire to support an organization that focuses on homelessness.
Cathe Reams – As Communications Director for Siemens USA – a longtime Corporate Partner to Rainbow Village – Cathe has been intimately familiar with the nonprofit for years. She has volunteered to ready apartments for incoming families, took part in holiday events and led a professional development series. First asked to serve on the Rainbow Village board in 2015, she has already served two terms.
"We are truly blessed with the additions of Cathe, Mona and Steve to our Board of Directors," said Melanie Conner, CEO of Rainbow Village (www.RainbowVillage.org). "Each of them brings a special brand of experience and enthusiasm to the group. I am filled with such hope and excitement over what the future holds for Rainbow Village and the families we serve thanks to the support we receive from a wonderful collection of individuals I am not only honored to call our board members, but also devoted members of our 'village.'"
