Today is Susan Cushman's last day as UCP Oregon's Family Support Director. She's been in the job since 2006, and is retiring to spend more time in her art studio.
Over the years, Susan has been an immensely positive force in the world of UCP--especially for the families and children we support. She is an artist, an activist, a mother, a wife, a daughter, and strong community member.
As Ann Coffey, UCP's Executive Director says,
Susan approached the Family Support Director position with an open heart, a helping hand, and a creative way of expressing compassion and authenticity.
