Former CP Intern Tackling Homelessness in Santa Cruz

Head shot of Tiffany Smith

Former Clinch-Powell intern and Appalachia CARES AmeriCorps Alum Tiffany Smith has carried the Clinch-Powell mission of “building strong communities” all the way to the West Coast. Smith, who is now the special project manager for the Santa Cruz County Office of Education (CCOE) in Santa Cruz, California, works very closely with at risk youth. She recently collaborated with a group of organizations who serve homeless populations in Santa Cruz County to obtain 2.2 million dollars in grant funds to provide much needed assistance to homeless youth.

Clinch-Powell in Training

Clinch-Powell RC&D is committed to providing competent services, and offering the most up-to-date information to our community. Our team is always working to become more informed and better trained. Recently, Appalachia CARES, AmeriCorps member Andi Rhichardson traveled to Kansas City, MO to complete her training for certification to teach Home Buyer Education. Congratulations Andi! She will be teaching her first class at the Bryan House in Rutledge on May 30th.
