photo of AC member Janice deLima“I am a strong supporter of NVME because I have seen first-hand the difference they have made in so many communities. I have had the chance to meet many NVME alumni, and have heard their stories of where they started and how they were able to confidently move forward with help from NVME. We all have moments when we need someone on our side—NVME has been a trusted partner helping many people make progress along their own paths.”  – Janice deLima, Advisory Council Member and CRA Officer, Norway Savings Bank
