Membership in OVCT has allowed our small non-profit to expand its network of contacts. An OVCT member connected our organization to a leader in the Austin community. We would not have had access to this leader. Being a member of OVCT opened the door for us and gave the "small guy" a big voice! This is a worthwhile organization with excellent members.

Andy Standish, President & Founder of the Standish Foundation for Child & Family Centered Healthcare

One Voice keeps me focused on the big picture and motivates me to keep fighting the good fight. Our collective efforts as leaders in this community make a significant impact and I feel proud to be in the company of such inspiring people.

Darcie DeShazo, Executive Director, The Settlement Home for Children

The role of One Voice in our community is more critical now than ever before. With over 100 members representing human service agencies large and small, our collective voices carry the power to actually change lives. One Voice as a forum provides meaningful professional development, networking opportunities, and a seat at the table with many Central Texas entities that make crucial decisions every day impacting the wellbeing of our community.

Ronda Rutledge, Executive Director, Sustainable Food Center

Every day, we work in the trenches helping one young person at a time. Membership in One Voice helps our agency to realize our mission at a greater scale. With many and competing demands on my time as an Executive Director, it is One Voice that allows me to work efficiently and effectively, community-wide, through advocacy.

Suki Steinhauser, CEO, Communities in Schools of Central Texas

One Voice is an important, regular touch point for organizations working on the hardest human challenges facing our community.

Steve Jackobs, Executive Director, Capital IDEA

It is very helpful to be around other executive directors - learning; sharing; gaining perspective. Appreciate the opportunity!

Joyce Lauck, Executive Director, AGE of Central Texas

As a new Executive Director in 2010, I was so fortunate to be engaged by my peers in the community participating in One Voice. It was a tremendous benefit to me and my organization to be plugged into an organization that collectively advocates for health and human service policies while exercising respected influence with key decision makers in our community.

Paul Scott, Executive Director, AIDS Services of Austin

I receive so much benefit from the Budding Buddies program. Without knowing [my buddy], I wouldn’t have known that Austin Free-Net provides IT services to nonprofits at a very discounted rate. We lost our IT contractor this spring and I am now using Austin Free-Net. Our new IT guy, John, saved us during a major technology meltdown.
