BEND, Ore. - Family Access Network Foundation (FAN) announces that Sunny Maxwell has accepted a position on our Foundation Board.
The mission of the Family Access Network is to improve lives by ensuring all children in Deschutes County have access to basic-need services.
Sunny Maxwell moved to Bend in 2009, and has loved every minute of life in Central Oregon.
After graduating from Vanderbilt University and living in London, San Francisco and North Carolina, she and her husband were looking for an ideal place to raise their two children when they discovered Bend. They were drawn to Bend's sense of community, great school systems, and orientation towards family life.
Feeling very fortunate to have found such a special place, Sunny was looking for an organization through which she could give back locally.
FAN's mission is a perfect fit for her values and desire to help other families in need. Sunny's company, Maxwell Design, specializes in home renovations and interior design. She also rides horses competitively, and loves to ski, run, and be outdoors with her family.
FAN began in January 1993 and currently employs 26 advocates in 46 public schools (K-12) and three early childhood sites. FAN strives to improve lives by ensuring all children in Deschutes County have access to basic-need services. FAN is unique to Deschutes County, utilizing advocates to efficiently reach and connect disadvantaged children and families with basic needs, such as food, shelter, clothing, and health care.
