Congratulations TTCF Program Director, Kristina Kind

Kristina Kind

We’re pleased to announce the promotion of Kristina Kind from CCTT/MHC Program Coordinator to Program Director.

Prior to joining TTCF in 2020, Kristina worked extensively with youth-focused nonprofits in Lake Tahoe and in the San Francisco Bay Area. She is impressed by the resiliency of children and is committed to galvanizing the community’s resources to better support them. In her tenure at TTCF, Kristina has managed all program-related communications for Mountain Housing Council (MHC) and Community Collaborative of Tahoe Truckee (CCTT). In her free time, she skis, hikes, and camps.

I am proud to work at TTCF and am especially grateful to work with a cadre of colleagues who care so deeply for our community. The strength of our region’s collaborative work is awe-inspiring and often highlighted inside and outside the region. I am excited for this new role.

After 15 years of leading the Community Collaborative of Tahoe Truckee (CCTT), Alison Schwedner has departed from her role as Director. During her tenure, Alison developed a trust-based culture of collaboration, shining a light on community disparities and advocating support for those who need us most. She catalyzed many community solutions, including the creation of wellness centers throughout Tahoe Truckee Unified School District. Alison was instrumental in unifying the Family Resource Center of Truckee, North Tahoe Family Resource Center, Tahoe SAFE Alliance, and Project MANA into Sierra Community House, and she helped develop the Tahoe-Truckee COAD (Community Organizations Active in Disaster).
