United Way of the Southern Tier Announces Key Staff Promotion Hubbell to Support Strategic Initiatives

United Way of the Southern Tier announces the promotion of Barbara Hubbell to the role of Senior Director of Strategic Initiatives.

Ms. Hubbell, previously the Director of Community Impact, has been with United Way for 18 years. In her former role, she was principally responsible for guiding the community investment process in support of local health and human service program needs in Chemung and Steuben County. “For nearly two decades, Barbara Hubbell has perfected our allocations process to one that is a gold standard for United Way’s across the country,” said Stephen Hughes, President and Chief Executive Officer.

United Way of the Southern Tier has evolved and leads a community-wide collective impact initiative, striving to make population-level changes and improve outcomes for children, senior citizens and those struggling with basic needs. In this newly-created position, Hubbell will provide management for United Way’s key strategic priority and collective impact initiative, known as Southern Tier Kids on Track.

“Having been personally involved with the evolution of impact in this United Way for so many years, I look forward to helping the organization and the community take this work to the next level to achieve greater, long-term results. By combining the science of early brain development with the science of large-scale social change, we will work together to accomplish great things for children and families in the Southern Tier, now and for the future,” said Hubbell.

Hubbell is often called upon to share her skills and knowledge with United Way colleagues from across the nation.

She resides in Schuyler County with her husband, Robert.
