Family Focused Organizations Share A Unique Bond

Door County's numerous non profits often lead to multiple organizations with things in common. Two groups share more than just the services they provide to youth in the community- their leaders are married.

Dan Powell is the Chief Executive Officer of the Door County YMCA and his wife Heather Powell is the Chief Professional Officer of the Door County Boys and Girls Club.

Heather says she frequently hears concerns that the two groups offer similar things to the community…

She says people need to remember how drastically the needs of various children can differ…

Having two organizations able to meet those specific needs is something Dan says works great for both operations…

Heather says the differences between how the YMCA and the Boys' and Girls' Club serve the community often makes collaboration a natural fit.

One such project that the husband and wife duo worked together on  –along with various other non profits in the area—was the summer's food service program.

Dan and Heather are working on another initiative together right now called Pioneering Healthier Communities. Heather says opportunities like that are where both her and her husband's operation can shine together…

The Powell's moved to Door County about six years ago when Dan got his start with the YMCA. Heather took up her role with the Boys and Girls Club about two years back.
