Board of Directors

I have been working here for over 15 years, serving as both the case manager and Assistant Director.  I strive to provide the most comprehensive client services possible.  It is always our goal to help clients move beyond their obstacles to obtain self-sufficiency.  

Assistant Director

Karen Poole

 It is a great honor to be back at the helm of the Voluntary Action Center.  It was a privilege to previously serve this community for five years .  I am proud to say that I'm a life long resident of Gordon County and have chosen to raise my family here.  

The heart of this community has proven time and again that care and compassion have no measure.  It's an honor to witness the outpouring of support for every member of our community.  It is because of this love and desire to help others that this organization was founded and continues to persevere for over 45 years.  

My goal is to continue providing outstanding service and continue to touch the lives of our Neighbors in Need.  I hope to have your support to grow this organization and move to new levels never imagined by our founding volunteers who worked to make the VAC the Heart of a Caring Community.
