Wanda Hines; Director

Wanda was hired by JUMP in February of 2013.  In her capacity as Director, Wanda supervises both staff and volunteers, and monitors grant, budget and fundraising activities.  She works closely with the Board and its various committees, and strives to build and maintain healthy and necessary relationships with faith communities, individuals, businesses, and foundations.

Wanda is a recognized leader in the greater Burlington community, having served as Director of the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf from 1995-2007, and Director of the Social Equity Investment Project, a social development resource for the City of Burlington, from 2007-2013.  Raised Baptist and the granddaughter of a Preacher, Wanda has, for 27 years, been a passionate, unwavering advocate and thoughtful leader for positive social change. She holds a B.A. in Public Administration and Community Development.

Mary Stannard Carter; Direct Service/Bookkeeping

A former volunteer, Mary now staffs the JUMP drop-in center. She especially enjoys the interaction with the clients, as well as the fast pace and camaraderie she shares with the volunteers.  She finds the work interesting, enlightening, intimate, and rewarding.


Mary has led a varied life, and has a background in many fields, including farming, music, science and politics.  She believes these experiences provide a variety of contexts from which to understand or solve an issue as well as to find commonality with others.  She is a congregant at The Cathedral Church of St. Paul, where she is active in social outreach and serves as the Junior Warden.
