In April, The Chief Executive Officer of Northwest Community Action Partnership, Karen Eisenbarth, announced her intent to retire effective June 30. Eisenbarth has been employed at the agency for nearly 14 years, first as the HR Director and then as CEO in 2013.
“Karen has provided exceptional leadership to NCAP during her tenure, expanding programs, and implementing technological advances that have improved agency capacity to provide exceptional service to our clients. The agency has seen growth in programs and partnerships in the communities”, says Jake Stewart, NCAP’s Board of Directors President. “Karen and the entire team at NCAP responded to the pandemic by immediately implementing remote services to clients to ensure the agency continued to meet the needs in each community NCAP serves”.
“It is with mixed emotion, joy, pride, and sadness that I step back from my role at NCAP,” said Eisenbarth. “Serving as the leader of this incredible agency has been the greatest honor of my life. This decision was made easier knowing the extraordinary capabilities and commitment of our Board of Directors, the leadership team, and our entire staff to continue to serve our communities.”
