Correction: In the introduction to the interview WMUK's Gordon Evans incorrectly stated that Thom Andrews was the first director of ONEplace. Andrews succeeded Bobbe Luce who was the organization's first director. 

The former Director of ONEplace says the group was launched in 2009 because almost everyone in a community is impacted by a non-profit organization.
