The entire SparkPoint team would like to congratulate Raul Amaya on being selected as our new SparkPoint Coordinator. Raul has served as the SparkPoint Staff Assistant for over 6 years, but in his new role he will be providing support to our students and local community around financial capability, food resources and housing resources. He will partner with our other SparkPoint Coordinator, Flor Lopez, to increase our capacity for SparkPoint programs such as rapid response hotel stays, rental assistance, student food grant, grocery distributions and financial coaching. Raul brings an incredible passion for working directly with students and an impressive knowledge of basic needs resources. He has already played a key role in launching many of these SparkPoint programs and he looks forward to the opportunity to expand his impact and take on new challenges.
Raul’s new role will become official on March 23rd, pending board approval, but we wanted to make the announcement now in honor of Skyline College’s annual March 4th celebration.
