New United Way Community Investment & Engagement Director

Rachel Rhodes has been named the new Community Investment and Engagement Director for the United Way of Wayne County. This position helps manage the United Way’s grant process in addition to engaging the community and volunteers to promote partner agencies. Currently, the United Way supports 16 program and services through community grants.

Rhodes comes to the United Way of Wayne County from Habitat for Humanity of Goldsboro-Wayne where she served as the Volunteer and Donor Coordinator. Rhodes has a long history of community engagement. She was a Girl Scout and continued to volunteer with the Scouts as an adult.

She believes that there is a time in everyone’s life when they need a helping hand or are able to give one. “Living overseas helped me to realize that even though we may have cultural, political or religious differences, we all share a common bond of wanting to connect with others and we should seek out that connection whenever we can”, Rhodes said.

Sherry Archibald, Executive Director, believes that this attitude aligns with the United Way’s mission and will enhance Rhodes ability to carry out the duties of the CIED director. “We are excited to have Rachel join our team”, she said.

Rhodes has recently become a resident of Wayne County and is excited for the opportunity to become more involved and integrated into the community.  To find out how you can connect with the United Way, email [email protected].
