Candida Odde’s love for the mountains and nature stemmed from growing up and playing in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, on the border of Wyoming and Idaho. Returning to her home town after 25 years, she now enjoys hunting, fishing, camping, snowmobiling, and motorcycling in those same mountains with her husband of 25 years and her grown children and grandbaby. Candi began working in the non-profit sector 14 years ago. Throughout the years, she evolved from a local program manager to a statewide mission’s specialist. She has been selected as a national presenter in her field and has facilitated local, statewide, and national coalitions. Her specialties include: grant writing, grant making, community profiles, coalition building, program oversight, systems development, and all missions related work.
Her first interactions with Casting for Recovery, were four years ago as a grantor to the Wyoming CfR Program. She quickly became “hooked” on the organization and is excited to officially become part of the CfR team, as she has witnessed first-hand the impact that the program makes on the lives of survivors.
