  • Interim director excited to help raise profile of Good Earth Village

    “I’ve always done nonprofit work. The position I had before I moved to Minnesota in 2006 was as director of resource development for a domestic violence and sexual assault center that had a shelter, housing onsite and offsite.  It wasn’t a faith-based organization, but it was supported a lot by churches, so there was a remarkable sense of pastoral care and hope, sanctuary, of sorts, even though it wasn’t a faith-based organization.  I missed being where I could see (the results) of working with people, so I finished my master’s degree in nonprofit management, and it was like the stars aligned, like I was in the right place at the right time,” stated Parks, interim director at Good Earth Village (GEV) outside of Spring Valley.
