Jim Hatlieb, president of the MOM Board of Directors, touring the organization's new headquarters, which will open this year, earlier this week.

Kathy Hansen is stepping down from her position as Middleton Outreach Ministry’s executive director. She was hired in May of 2012, and was MOM’s first female director and its fourth director in five years.

“Since my arrival I have been blown away by all the good work MOM does in our community,” Hansen said. “With a strong committed staff and solid programs it is easy to see all the meaningful work that is making lives better each and every day.”

When she arrived, Hansen said she wanted to bring sensibilities from the for-profit sector to her work at MOM, helping maximize the number of people the organization could reach.

Hansen said she is leaving for personal reasons, primarily because the commute from Lake Geneva to Middleton had become too difficult. She called 2012 “a tremendous year for MOM.”

Jim Hartlieb, president of MOM’s board of directors, said a comprehensive search for Hansen’s successor will soon be underway. MOM is in the midst of moving into a new headquarters, consolidating its food pantry and main offices, at 3502 Parmenter Street. 

Hartlieb said the charitable organization hopes to have the new facility up and running by early spring. A capital campaign to pay for the building is currently in its “formative stages,” he said.

Hansen said she is “humbled” by the community’s generosity and kindness during her time as executive director.  

“I feel good knowing that MOM is on an extremely upward path.  MOM’s Board of Directors, staff and volunteers is stronger than ever,” she said. “Together with the exceptional staff, they are ready to make 2013 the best year yet.”

Hansen said she hopes to remain connected to MOM in a volunteer capacity in the future.
