Unity House Board Member Honored by Capital Region Chamber

Highlighting valuable engagement between businesses and nonprofits

When you think of the Capital Region Chamber maybe you think of the terrific job they do of promoting the Capital Region as a great place to work, play, and raise a family, or start a business. They also do a fantastic job of raising awareness about the contribution of nonprofit organizations. Nonprofits are a vital economic force, one that has a tremendous impact on the quality of life for all residents. The Chamber’s Nonprofit Awards Program recognizes individuals and organizations for exemplary contributions to the vitality of our community.

Unity House is thrilled that board member Katherine “Kate” Koval will be recognized for exceptional board service. Kate has served over 15 years on the Unity House board of directors in a variety of capacities. She has demonstrated effective nonprofit governance practices and is dedicated in actualizing the mission of Unity House. Most important, Kate reflects the core values of Unity House not just in sharing her time, talent, and treasure, she demonstrates caring in her every day life.
