With that, we want to take this time to update you on some exciting changes within The Cobblestone Project. For the first time since this journey started in 2008, we have hired an Executive Director.
Fayetteville, AR (September 4, 2012) – The Cobblestone Project Board of Directors is excited to announce Katelyn Graves as the Executive Director of the Cobblestone Project, made effective September 4.
Katelyn has been serving with the Cobblestone Project for three years as the Operations Director. She grew up in Fayetteville, AR and graduated from the University of Arkansas in 2009. Katelyn has a heart for the needs of this world and has served locally and globally for many years.

The Cobblestone Project exists to work toward the dream of realizing “a community without need,” by identifying issues of social justice, connecting needs with willing resources, and fulfilling needs with sustainable solutions. Through initiatives such as Laundry Love, 3 Bags in 2 Days, Present in the City, the Cobblestone Farm, and others, real physical needs are being met and the restoration of dignity and respect of every person that makes up the greater Community of NW Arkansas is closer.
