Meet Our New CEO Leslie Davis
Dear Families, Friends, and Partners,
I am extremely excited to introduce myself to you as the new CEO of Via. For those who do not know me yet, I have been with Via Services for three years, as the Via West Director, and most recently, as the Vice President of Programs, where I had the chance to lead a wonderful team in building and enhancing our Via West and First Step services. I know that with our talented and dedicated team, we can advance Via’s mission of helping individuals with special needs in achieving greater self-sufficiency and leading richer lives.
As we celebrate our 70th anniversary next year, what comes next is even brighter! We will be exploring the broader world of services and researching where we can expand to make an even bigger impact for those served. I am asking all of you to continue to reach out to us. Your input is crucial to growing our organization’s reach and in taking the next steps in extending our services to even more families. Together we can make both simple and transformational changes on a daily basis. I believe there is so much more that we can accomplish together, and I hope you do too! I am grateful for this opportunity to serve and look forward to what the future holds in years to come.
