Her show, Leaders with Heart, provides an in depth look into the work of nonprofits locally in Westchester and beyond. She and her guests, leaders at various levels of service work, will probe national issues that matter to most and affect all. Violence prevention, food insecurity, affordable housing, diversity, equity and inclusion; just some of the topics for rich full-bodied conversation with folks leading in the work. Lucria calls nonprofit leaders “Heart People,” for we lead with heart into important mission to serve communities; and also serve those that fall into societal gaps, which can be hard work that is not for the faint of “heart.”
Her show will stream live on Mondays at 9:30am on Facebook where you can also follow the Y’s work.
Leaders with Heart is generously made possible in part by our friends at Yonkers Honda. Lead with heart and the rest will follow!
