Message from the Board
Not pictured: Kimberly Lewis and Brad Firethunder.
Members of the Native American Connections' Board of Directors have witnessed the positive impact of NAC's affordable housing, behavioral health, and community development services on the lives of Native American individuals and families. Under the leadership of Diana Yazzie Devine and her committed staff, Native American Connections has transformed into one of the oldest and most respected nonprofit organizations reaching those in need throughout Phoenix.
While the Board remains diverse in terms of the experiences and expertise offered by each member, the members share a common vision and enthusiasm to continue growing and strengthening the services of Native American Connections. Staying true to our roots, over half the board members are Native American, and to ensure the integrity of our services for homeless men and women, the board includes an individual who experienced homelessness.
Roxann Gallagher, Vice Chairman of the Board
