Today we are sad to bid farewell to a beloved member of the ACE team. Robert Shear has been an AmeriCrops VISTA at ACE for a year and 8 months. During his service at ACE he helped us receive grants that have led to huge growth and greatly enhanced our ability to help our community. Chief among these was our 1.5 million dollar grant from the Department of Labor. Beyond his fantastic work developing ACE Robert brought an immense amount of love and passion to our home and our surrounding community. Always one to find new local spots and try new eateries he truly fell in love with Canoga Park. While we are sad at Robert’s departure his impact will be felt for many years to come.
