One Troy is excited to announce the addition of Penny Holmes to the team. We are thrilled to have Penny Holmes leading this project through its implementation phase. Penny grew up in the One Troy target area and has “lived” experience of this community’s strength. She sees a direct connection between the disinvestment, loss of employment opportunity, and loss of morale with neighbor’s perceptions of a lack of safety, opportunity for youth, and other community revitalization initiatives. Penny’s career is equally as impressive in the way that it prepares her to support sub recipients while they both deliver programs, satisfy reporting requirements and meet all financial obligations including the MWBE agreements. Penny has spent her more than thirty year career in project development and leadership with the YWCA of Troy, Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany, Hamilton Hill Arts Center, and the Ark, Inc. after school and summer cultural enrichment programs. She is adept in all phases of NYS contracting from grant writing, reporting, licensing and satisfying financial requirements. The One Troy project is incredibly fortunate to have Penny leading this phase of the project.
