Our Valley Our Future coordinator joins Washington COVID-19 recovery group


WENATCHEE — Civic leader Steve Maher will join an advisory board to help guide social services while Washington state recovers from coronavirus. Maher is executive director of Our Valley Our Future, a group that’s studied economic and housing inequality in the Wenatchee Valley since it was founded five years ago. Gov. Jay Inslee, who appointed Maher to the group, says the new Social Supports advisory board will help make sure the state’s most vulnerable residents aren’t left behind in a recovery. The team held its first virtual meeting today. Maher joined NCWLIFE’s Jefferson Robbins to talk about its mission.
