December is a good month to feature ORI employee Ginny Osteen. Ginny leads the A Home for the Holidays fundraiser to help homeless families find housing. A Home for the Holidays began in December 2006 when Ginny asked family, friends and co-workers to help one family move into a home. Donations have increased each year and as of December 2012 totaled $57,540. In collaboration with First Place Family Center in Eugene, and with a little bit of help from her friends, Ginny has helped over 100 families move into permanent housing or to stay in existing housing during a time of financial crisis. Thank you Ginny! Hired in 1981 as a Clerk Typist/Secretary, Ginny is currently a key member of ORI’s grants management team.
