Honor Ramona Leber

Mayor photo
For twenty two years Ramona Leber faithfully served the Washington State Community Mobilization program; first as the Cowlitz county coordinator, then as a statewide contract manager and lastly as the sole program manager. Ramona is not only extremely knowledgeable about the Art and Science of Community Organizing, she lived it each and every day! Ramona knew first hand the importance of forming relationships and listening to the voices in the  community as well as looking at data to solve problems. Ramona empowered all of us to dream of and realize a better future for our communities, our families and most importantly our youth and children. Washington state is a better place because of Ramona.  With the closing of the Community Mobilization program Ramona is moving on into the next chapter of her life of service.
Please join the prevention field in acknowledging her many years of service with a gift to WASAVP in her honor (this is her wish in lieu of gifts). Please also make a comment below to honor Ramona, your comments will be shared with her.

    Ramona was so welcoming when I was new to the field. She has and continues to be a wealth of knowledge and support in how communities can unite and come together to prevent youth substance abuse and violence. Often times it’s easy to get caught up in looking at % change numbers and outcomes, but in reality those numbers are people. Families and neighbors whose lives are healthier because of substance abuse prevention and community organizing. Thank you Ramona for all you’ve done to help the field, the State, and this new prevention professional.
    All my best to you!
