The Source Forms a Members-Only Advisory Council

While The Source for the poor and the homeless in Vero Beach have been setting their bar higher and higher with the standard and number of much needed programs and services for their members, the staff has decided to take a bit of a back seat by taking some advice from those that have the most in the say… that is, their homeless members.

Anthony Zorbaugh, Executive Director of The Source, in tandem with Jade Alexander, Operations Director, have selected several members of the organization to form an Advisory Council. Their job hits close to home. Their seat on the council allows them to express ideas and address challenges they and other members may encounter at The Source, while working together as a team to come up with possible solutions.’s working!

The Advisory Council members, overseen by Jade Alexander, (centered) include Karen McDonough (Shower Attendant), Russell Walker (Dining With Dignity Student and current Dignity Food Truck Operator), Tammy Atkins (Cleans Bus and makes beds through Dignity Jobs Program) and Pablo Acevedo  (Volunteering on Bus and helps with laundry on weekends).
