Volunteers of America Colorado Names New VPs of Advancement and Marketing, Aging and Nutrition Services
Denver, CO – Volunteers of America Colorado today announced it has hired Faustine Curry as its Vice President of Advancement and Marketing and Nate Lamkin as its Vice President of Aging and Nutrition Services.
Curry comes to VOAC with more than a decade of experience in fundraising, donor and partner relations, and marketing. She previously served as Major Gift Officer for Southwestern University and most recently helped re-envision development strategy at Stand Up to Cancer. Curry also holds a Juris Doctorate degree from Oklahoma City University and practiced law in both the private and public sectors.
“Volunteers of America Colorado is on the frontlines each and every day helping people get the resources they need,” said Curry. “It’s both humbling and inspiring to join VOAC at this time to lead a successful advancement team to further strengthen the organization’s impact and support of those most vulnerable in our community.”
Lamkin previously served as President of Pathways, a nonprofit agency that provides hospice, palliative care, and bereavement counseling services in Northern Colorado. Recently, Lamkin oversaw the completion of an $8 million capital campaign that resulted in the cutting-edge Inpatient Care Center in Fort Collins. He joins VOAC just as the organization moves its Denver Metro Meals on Wheels operation, food bank services, and newly created test kitchen to a 54,000 square foot Aging and Nutrition Services Center in Commerce City.
“Volunteers of America Colorado is constantly innovating,” said Lamkin. “The new Aging and Nutrition Services Center is a state-of-the-art space that will allow us to combat hunger and support seniors in new ways. I am so excited to be coming on at the beginning of this new chapter.”
Volunteers of America Colorado contains more than 50 distinct programs, operates more than two dozen affordable housing sites, and was of service to more than 104,000 individuals in 2022.
“The mission of VOAC hasn’t changed in more than 127 years. The methods have,” said VOAC President and CEO Dave Schunk. “With Faustine and Nate joining the team, I’m confident we have the right people in place to guide us into a new era of giving back.”
