Introducing our New Development Specialist

Josh Blog

My name is Josh Nadzam, and I’d like to introduce myself and express how excited I am to be a part of GreenHouse17! I am a recently hired Development Specialist in my second month at the organization.

I was born and raised in the small town of Monaca, located in Western Pennsylvania. I eventually made my way down to Lexington to run track for the University of Kentucky. I competed on the team for five years and during my time I earned a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in social work.

I cannot explain how pumped I am to be a part of such an amazing organization. The staff, the facility, the farm, the families at our shelter—everything has been great so far. Most importantly it feels incredible to be a part of a mission I believe in with all my heart: ending domestic violence.

From time to time, I’ll be blogging here on our website about giving opportunities. Right now, we’re excited to be participating in the GoodGiving Guide Challenge. We hope to raise $20,000 by the end of the year to support survivors. We’re also gearing up to launch our Holiday Giving campaign very soon. Please  follow us on Twitter @GreenHouse17KY to stay informed about our mission and happenings.

I look forward to connecting with you all as we join together in this cause. You can always reach me directly by phone at 859.519.1922 or through this form on our website.
