New Director of Rural Programs Focuses on Numerous Goals

by Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits

Angelica Hernandez-Williams is our new director of Rural Programs. She has a background in nonprofit management and workforce training specializing in rural communities. She has a passion for elevating the heart of nonprofits in the many rural communities throughout Arizona. Here is a highlight of the areas she will working on in her role.

Since 2010, the Alliance has held an AmeriCorps VISTA grant. Hernandez-Williams will become the new program director and continue to help servant leaders reduce poverty in rural Arizona. Our current grant has capacity for 16 VISTA Members and one VISTA Leader.

Hernandez-Williams is a co-host with the director of Marketing and Events on the Illuminate AZ Nonprofit Podcast. She helps coordinate guests, develop questions and build exposure throughout Arizona. This is another opportunity to raise the voices of nonprofits and consultants for nonprofits throughout Arizona. This is done in partnership with the entire marketing department.

Growing the capacity of rural nonprofits is a priority of this role. Ensuring rural nonprofits have a main point of contact, know they can receive assistance from the Alliance, and increasing attendance in trainings are key pillars that this position is aiming to establish.

With a grant award from Coors Light Líderes, Hernandez-Williams is partnering with our director of Community Engagement to build a Latino group focused on increasing leadership diversity within the nonprofit sector. Arizona United Latinos Nonprofit Council (AZUL) is kicking off in October.
