ECHO Housing Corporation, the convening agency for the Jacobsville Quality of Life Planning initiative, announces Jennifer Mason as the Community Mobilizer for the project. The City of Evansville granted funds for a resident-led collaborative process to develop a Quality of Life Plan with the Jacobsville neighborhood.
Mason joined ECHO in August 2012, as the Homeless Veterans Program Coordinator. Stephanie TenBarge, ECHO Housing Executive Director, said “Jennifer was a perfect fit to step into the Community Mobilizer role with her public service background and community involvement. We are excited to have her on board to lead this project for the Jacobsville neighborhood.” Mason will organize this unique initiative bringing together Jacobsville residents, leaders and stakeholders in a planning effort that will set a new vision for Jacobsville with an action plan for achievable results.
