Nicole Haas Named Interim Director of United Way of Northwest Illinois

Freeport, IL – The United Way of Northwest Illinois is committed to fighting for the education, financial stability, and health of every person in Northwest Illinois. The United Way Board of Directors knows the United Way is a critical link in our community, and wants to ensure the great work done by the United Way and their partners continues during the transition in leadership. This is why the United Way of Northwest Illinois has named Nicole Haas as Interim Director during the transition between Nieman and the new Director. Haas is a native of Northwest Illinois and has worked with several non-profit and for-profit organizations in the area. Haas specializes in marketing and public relations and has served on the United Way board for seven years and helped the organization with several marketing campaigns and special events. She resides in rural Elizabeth with her husband and two boys.

Haas offered these thoughts, “I am glad I can offer United Way a familiar face during this transition time. I have been on the board for several years and witnesses many exciting changes at the organization and while we will greatly miss the enthusiasm and expertise Tiffany has offered the position, we look forward to working toward our community outreach goals with a new face.”
