Jean Gambrielle announces Retirement as ED of Chelan Valley Hope

Jean Gambrielle will retire December 31st as Executive Director after successfully serving in this role for Chelan Valley Hope over the past 2 years.  After a career of more than 30 years in healthcare operations and other executive roles, she will retire in Chelan and enjoy a new season that brings time with family, friends, and travel. The CVH Board of Directors has begun recruitment for Jean’s successor.  Qualified candidate referrals can be emailed to Michael Gibb, Board President, at or mailed to PO Box 2890, Chelan, WA.  98816 

CVH is a thriving social services agency (founded 13 years ago), providing a broad menu of client assistance from emergency shelter to rent assistance to food and fuel vouchers.  Chelan Valley Hope will continue to be viable well into the future through the strong leadership of Jean, her successor, and the Board of Directors. Jean is fully vested in the continued success of CVH and will be staying on through year end to assure there is a seamless transition. Gibb said, “Jean’s leadership has strengthened the foundational areas of operations, grants, client programs, volunteerism, technology, donor management, social media, and more. As a result of Jean’s dedication and hard work, and the commitment of our staff and wonderful volunteers, the next Executive Director will be in a great position to take this organization even further”.
