Sharon is Movin’ on UP!

Sharon is Movin’ on UP!

After 12 years of leadership with Prosperity Works, Senior Vice President, Sharon Henderson has taken a job in Washington DC!


The contributions that she has made to asset development in NM and the Nation have been immeasurable! We might even call her the mother of Individual Development Accounts (IDA’s) in New Mexico because she not only wrote our state’s legislation, she designed, implemented and led our New Mexico Assets Consortium that has been recognized as a best practice model in the US. She served as a founding member of the Credit Builders Alliance in Washington, and has provided technical assistance to communities, organizations, and tribes from sea to shinning sea, and literally wrote the book…..well at least the “how to” manual on running an IDA program for the Office of Community Service in HHS.


Interestingly, now that is where she is going! Sharon will assume a position as a policy expert on the Assets for Independence (AFI) program, asset building, and financial capability. WOW!


Of course she is all of that and more! We are thrilled that we kept her talents in New Mexico for as long as we did and want to send her off with our deep appreciation.


Please join us at Prosperity Works on Friday 25 March between 5 and 6:30 to wish her well, and thank her for her service to New Mexico!
