Leading a Vision Rehabilitation Organization
As leaders of non-profit organizations we face unique challenges. In a world where everyone has their hand extended, and people in need keep streaming through our doors, how do we keep our programs and staff safe and strong?
Who do you turn to ask the tough questions? How can you find someone who has already successfully traveled a path similar to the one you are on?
Members of VisionServe Alliance have each other. We know better than to reinvent the wheel, we have learned to grab the wheel and drive with the help of other members vast knowledge, experience and empathy.
