The Walker Area Community Foundation (WACF) is no stranger to responding to a crisis. From natural disasters to economic downturns, the Jasper-based nonprofit mobilizes resources and connects people and nonprofits during the most challenging times.

“Our role here is to listen to what the needs are in the community and pulling the right people in to organize solutions around those needs,” said Cristy Moody, director of operations for WACF.
