Life & Work with Nan McCoy

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nan McCoy. 

Hi Nan, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
The Walter Hive exists because we want to gift as many people as we can with the empowerment they feel when they learn that they’re capable of changing their world. 

At the Walter Hive, we are interested in the future of our world. Our workshops provide opportunities for sustainable skill set development for our participants. 

We also know that the power of connecting people through compassion, art, and creative expression is a way to weave positivity within our community. 

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Fortunately, we have the branding of Walter Productions. This has helped as we launched the nonprofit arm of the Walter Project. The challenge is that most funders require a minimum of 3 years for eligibility for funding. Subsequently, the biggest challenge is financial sustainability. 

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I have been a youth development professional for most of my career. My education is in therapeutic recreation and so special populations in the community has been my focus. I believe in providing a foundation for personal development and empowerment through programs and community engagement. 

How can people work with you, collaborate with you, or support you?
We provide lots of services and programs to community partners. To be able to continue offering the community the services, we need support with funding. Third-party fundraisers are very helpful.
