Governor Sue Ellspermann at the 2013 Indiana Housing and Economic Development Annual Conference.

Myra led her team, including staff from Mental Health of America Vigo County and Hamilton Center, through the Indiana Permanent Supportive Housing Institute and facilitated their progress, bringing YOUnity Village to life.
