“It’s my honor and privilege to do this work. Above and beyond everything else, I’m just thankful we’re here,” says Kelly Matter of Avivo, helping 15,000 people per year living at or below the poverty line achieve recovery and advancement.
Driven by the belief that everyone deserves the chance to live well and work well, Kelly shares that the team remains “utterly committed to rising to the occasion,” working harder than ever before on the frontline of COVID-19 and community justice issues.
Kelly’s nonprofit leadership tips:
- Use a “mission filter” in all decision-making.
- Operate as a business. No money, no mission.
- Be mindful. Encourage time off to avoid burnout. Have fun.
