Nevida Butler, former Executive Director of the Ecumenical Hunger Program in East Palo Alto, retired but couldn’t stay away. Why? She loved the many families and individuals who struggle to just get by in Silicon Valley. So, she returned in 2013 to work as a contractor.
Housing in Silicon Valley, home of high tech, high flying startups, is difficult for lower paid employees to get and keep. Nevida draws from the many lessons of her own life to help those people thrive. She gives them exactly what they need and then empowers them to help themselves.
