Trumbull County United Way president named to state board

WARREN — Ginny Pasha, president and CEO of the United Way of Trumbull County, was recently named to the Ohio United Way board.

It’s a position Pasha said she’s honored to have.

“This board has community and United Way leaders working together to advance the common good for all Ohioans. Together, we will be able to help guide health and human service needs throughout Ohio,” said Pasha.

Pasha said she believes the position will also expose the local United Way to different ways of improving services for people in Trumbull County.

The purpose of Ohio United Way is to serve the many local United Ways in the state by promoting public policy interests, providing educational opportunities and leading statewide initiatives designed to make improvements for each community.

Some of the initiatives are early childhood education coalitions to address barriers to school readiness for children under 6; local information and referral collaborations through 211, a health and human services referral system; a commitment to hunger and nutrition issues to ensure citizens, especially children, are not going hungry; and Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) awareness and asset-building coalitions.

Pasha joined the United Way of Trumbull County in 2013 as CEO and president. She was former president of Junior Achievement and Youth Employability Solutions and a former state development coordinator for Buckeye Jobs for Ohio’s Graduates.
