Weekly Wrap Up | Week of October 6

Today we say good-bye to Michigan Benefits Access Program Director, Jeanine Stanley. Jeanine has been with MAUW for nearly three years. In her time with us, Jeanine has provided tremendous insight and dedication in growing the work of the Michigan Benefits Access Program - training over 4,000 people in the MI Bridges system and helping more than 10,000 Michigan households link to the MI Bridges system. Jeanine leaves MAUW to bring her talents to the Michigan Department of Human Services. We will miss Jeanine's wealth of knowledge, smile and positive energy around the office, but wish her the best of luck at DHS!
