AUBURN — Unity House of Cayuga County, Inc. announced it has elected a new community leader for the agency’s board of directors.
David C. Wilder, president of the Illinois–based St. Thérèse of Lisieux Foundation, began his new duties in August. St. Thérèse of Lisieux Foundation is a nonprofit that fosters national programs to create and enhance what Pope John Paul II called a “culture of life” and a “civilization of love,” according to a news release from Unity House.
Wilder is the former managing director of Lumen Institute Inc. in New York City, an international organization providing highly personalized formation in character, faith, and leadership for hundreds of Fortune 500 C-Level business executives and cultural leaders, Unity House said.
Wilder is a graduate of Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship with degrees in political science and business administration. He has also worked in sales and sales management within the transportation industry, and is a “sought-after operations and development consultant for nonprofits,” the release stated.
Unity House says it is a nonprofit that provides transitional and permanent housing, rehabilitative, respite, and employment services for individuals with mental illnesses, developmental disabilities, and/or chemical dependencies from which they are recovering.
