Zoot picked as Executive Coach in High Desert Sustainability Initiative with The Olin Group
In preparing the Community Health Needs Assessment in 2014, St. Joseph Health Community Partnership Fund worked with Professional Research Consultants, Inc. (PRC) to conduct and analyze the community survey, and The Olin Group, Inc. to conduct interviews and focus groups and to summarize all the community input. That lead to a pilot program in 2015 to use SJH resources in growing capacity of organizations in the Victor Valley area of San Bernardino County. Now SJH and the Olin group have picked a group of grantees who will get intensive help in organizational capacity building with executive coaching. Zoot Velasco has been chosen as a coach for this initiative. Zoot will be working with grantee “A Better Way,” a domestic Violence shelter in the area. “It’s exciting to be chosen to help grow these organizations in an area of great need,” said Zoot.
