OPEN LETTER TO OUR PARTNERS AND THE AUSTIN COMMUNITY
Dear Friends and Supporters,
As we rapidly grow as an organization, we are faced with different milestones and transitions, some anticipated and others not. Such transitions lead organizations to dig deep, reevaluate their values, and revisit plans to ensure positive and productive forward motion. Our clients are our priority. Our clients are ASHwell’s sole purpose for what we do and why we do it.
ASHwell stands firmly behind our mission and vision. We manifest our mission and vision in the decisions we make and the actions we take.
Mission: Empowering Central Texas by providing sexual health and wellness services that serves the body, mind and spirit.
Vision: We envision a community made up of individuals, regardless of status, station, or background, that are empowered to navigate their own sexual health and wellness without shame, stigma or judgement.
Because we stand tall in our vision and mission in delivering excellent medical care to our community, the ASHwell Board of Directors was faced with making a pivotal decision, for the betterment of the organization and our clients.The ASHwell Board wishes to announce, that as of Tuesday, July 28, 2020, Lauren Powell, is no longer the Executive Director of ASHwell.
ASHwell wishes Ms. Powell well in her future endeavors.
Afi Y. Wiggins, Ph.D., will serve as Interim Executive Director until a new Executive Director is appointed.
ASHwell will continue to be intentional about creating compassionate medical care and a safe environment where individuals-regardless of race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender expression, religion, status, station, or background- feel welcome, well-informed, cared for, and loved.
For the love of community,
ASHwell Board of Directors 2020
