SEVCA Board Names Josh Davis as Executive Director

The SEVCA Board of Directors is pleased to announce that it has hired Josh Davis, of Brattleboro, to serve as SEVCA’s Executive Director. 

For the past 11 years, Davis has served as the Executive Director of Groundworks Collaborative, guiding the creation of Groundworks from the merger of The Brattleboro Drop-in Center and Morningside Shelter. Under his leadership, the agency expanded its staff, programming, the number of people it served and the construction of a new, energy-efficient drop-in center on Brattleboro's South Main Street.

Before joining Groundworks, Davis earned an MA in Sustainable Development from The School for International Training. He also served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Namibia and gained valuable international experience working in Japan and Kosovo.

Tom Dougherty, president of SEVCA's board of directors, expressed confidence in Davis's leadership.

In selecting Josh, SEVCA has chosen a team builder and leader from our community who is committed to our mission and will complement the great depth and breadth of the talent, skills, and dedication that is present in abundance at SEVCA in our staff and programs.

Josh Davis himself acknowledged the vital role SEVCA plays in the community.

Throughout my time at Groundworks and as a local resident, I've come to know and deeply appreciate the vital role SEVCA plays in our community, both as a critical partner and a provider of services and programs. I'm thrilled to be joining a terrific team and working together to make real and lasting improvements in the lives of individuals and families across Southeastern Vermont.

Davis will officially assume his role as SEVCA's Executive Director on January 1, 2024.
