Lisbeth Valdez
Program Director

“My goal is to hold the hands of those in need and walk them and their families toward financial stability. We are here to give people the tools and knowledge they need to reach their educational, financial, and personal goals. As a first-generation immigrant, I can relate to the difficulty of adapting to a new culture, learning a new language, and navigating new systems hence why I am determined to help others attain stability.

I am extremely committed to this new experience at MakeIT Haverhill, a space accessible to everyone! As a social communication professional with extensive knowledge in computing, my work of guiding and providing knowledge has become one of my greatest purposes at a professional level. For me it is gratifying to contribute to the development of the community in the educational and work fields.

"I was aware of MakeIT Haverhill from media coverage of their launch. But my interest deepened when Team Haverhill hosted one of their monthly meetings at the MakeIT Haverhill collaboration space. I was hooked! I want our local companies to be filled with happy and productive employees from the Mount Washington neighborhood. Everybody wins if that happens!”

Tim Haynes
Digital Literacy & Equity
Program Advisor

“My wife Jessa and I recently began attending the Unitarian Universalist Church of Haverhill, which is a donor to MakeIT Haverhill. Through the church (and Google!) I made a connection to Keith Boucher and Community Action, Inc.'s CEO, Kerri Perry! I want to bring public and private community resources to bear to bridge the digital divide and to make digital literacy available to all, especially to those who need it most.”
