Co-Director of the Community Empowerment Fund Maggie West will be transitioning out of her position this summer.

West announced the move in a letter last week, thanking everyone she has worked with along the way.

“Working alongside all of you has been a gift—filled with people and moments and experiences I will cherish always. Thank you, from my heart and soul, for the ways that literally every single one of you has been a part of co-creating this transformative place,” said West.

Although she will no longer maintain her role, West says she will be staying in the area and working with the rest of the team to help ensure a smooth transition.

Co-directors Jon Young and Janet Xiao will continue to run the non-profit, which focuses on enabling and sustaining transitions out of poverty and homelessness in Orange and Durham counties.
