Community Foundation of Elkhart County has named Candy Yoder chief program officer. Her transition is expected to be completed by July 1. She currently serves as president and CEO of Child And Parent Services. Yoder joined CAPS in 1989 as a program coordinator leading the development of new programs. In 1993, she became vice president for programs and services. In 2009, when Daryl Abbot retired after leading CAPS from its inception in the 1970s, Yoder took over as president and CEO.

While her transition to the Community Foundation will mark a key change in leadership, CAPS is positioned well to continue to provide programs and services in fulfilling its mission. The 21-member board is committed to the Vision 2020 strategic plan. With the strength of the overall staff of 90 employees and more than 100 volunteers, the board will follow the clear roadmap for continued service and growth into the future.

In her new role, Yoder will focus on programs that benefit children and families. She will join staff members at the foundation who encourage grant applications that make a difference in the community. Volunteer committee members then make decisions on the largest grants.

The Community Foundation of Elkhart County, which is in its 29th year, awarded more than $18 million in grants in the last fiscal year, including more than $2 million in scholarships.
