Friends, indeed, for friends in need
by Karen Coney Coplin
There’s a new face in town – or, actually, many faces- all of whom comprise a newly launched not-for profit, the Collier Resource Center. If you haven’t heard about it, the organization will host an upcoming “Friendraising” event later this month or in early April, 2017 as an introduction to the Naples community.
What is the Collier Resource Center? This organization is, in large part, the brainchild of a longtime Naples resident, Nina Gray, who has been a part of the Naples non-profit community as a professional and as a committed volunteer. As a retired CEO and Chief Advancement Officer for several well-regarded organizations such as the Neighborhood Health Clinic, she observed first-hand that many potential clients of human service organizations encountered a variety of barriers prior to getting the help they need.
