Gold Beach resident Reneé Brooks was recently appointed to the Wild Rivers Community Foundation Board of Directors.

The Wild Rivers Community Foundation’s mission is to inspire people and communities by facilitating dialogue and encouraging charitable giving to support the region now and forever.  The foundation serves Curry and Del Norte counties.

“This was a great opportunity to become involved with an organization that focuses on providing communities with the support they need to solve their own problems while linking them to resources in their area,” Brooks said.  

“The Wild Rivers Community Foundation looks at each community as having individual needs, but also works to build on the commonalities shared between each community in the Wild Rivers Region,” she said.

Brooks is Administrative Coordinator for Curry Health Network and serves on the Curry County Commission on Children and Families, Curry County Drug Free Coalition, Curry County Human Services Advisory Committee, Special Transportation Fund Advisory Board and the Local Public Safety Coordinating Council.  Reneé is also a Port Orford Rotarian.

She has a BSc in Psychology from Eastern Oregon University. She has a proven track record in public service, having worked for the Curry County Sheriff’s Department 911 Center, Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS) as a Child Welfare Protective Service Worker and later as the Manager of the DHS Volunteer Program for the area of Coos and Curry counties.  

Brooks has experience in nonprofit organizations at the board level and was the executive director of South Coast Independent Living Services. She is a business woman and is an active member of the Gold Beach Chamber of Commerce. In addition, she is an international board certified lactation consultant and a certified birth assistant for Curry General Hospital.

She lived for one year in Costa Rica where she worked with a small hospital providing education and consultation to new mothers. As a Port Orford Rotarian, she and her club are currently working with the Curry Health Network on an international project to purchase pediatric medical equipment for that same Costa Rican hospital.

  • SEC to Investigate BofA Over Customer-Protection Rules: WSJ
    Bank of America Corp. is being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission over whether the lender broke rules designed to safeguard customer accounts, according to the Wall Street Journal. The bank’s Merrill Lynch unit used a variety of large, complex trades and loans over a three-year period to save on funding costs and free up billions of dollars in cash and securities for trading that the firm would otherwise have needed to keep off-limits, the newspaper reported Tuesday, citing people familiar with the inquiry without naming them. Bank of America stopped the trades in mid-2012, and now the SEC is investigating whether the strategy violated customer-protection rules and if the company misled regulators about its actions, the paper said. The strategies were in place when Bank of America bought Merrill Lynch in 2009 and the company “fully complied with the rules designed to safeguard client funds,” Bill Halldin, a spokesman for the Charlotte, North Carolina lender, said in an e-mailed statement.
