Announcement: Two New Team Members To The IVMF

We are pleased to announce the addition of two new team members to the IVMF who will be supporting Community Advising Initiatives.

Vincent DelSignore formerly worked as a Senior Program Officer at Single Stop, a nonprofit that provides coordinated access to services—connecting people to the resources they need to attain higher education, obtain good jobs, and achieve financial stability. Single Stop works with veterans and families to make the transition back to civilian life more manageable. In his role as a Senior Program Officer, Vincent had over 6 years of experience in working with the organization’s anti-poverty programs in NYC. He provided strategic guidance, technical assistance, and performance management to a diverse portfolio of grantee organizations. He also led and designed the implementation of Single Stop’s Veterans Initiative, which seeks to ensure that all military veterans and their families have access to the resources, support, jobs, and education they need to succeed in civilian life. To support this initiative, he managed relationships with key partners including New York City’s Department of Veterans Affairs, the New York City Mayor’s Office, and senior level executives at partner organizations and foundations. Vincent holds a B.A. in Economics from Sarah Lawrence College.

Vincent joins the IVMF team on March 1st as a Program Manager for Community Advising and will be based in New York City. Vincent will be assigned to the NYCServes market and his experience working with veteran providers in this space will be an immediate asset to the project. He will also be assigned to support the NCServes markets.

Matthew Feldhaus has spent the past two years working for Apple where he served as a Project Manager, helping to build out Apple’s new Veterans program. Matthew served in the PA National Guard from 2009-2015. He completed training at the Intelligence School in Fort Huachua, AZ, and served as a 35-M, Human Intelligence Collector. He also spent 2 years studying at the Defense Language Institute and completed the language course of Modern Standard Arabic. While in the military he received the Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal for over 200 volunteer hours in his local community. He has been involved in several volunteer initiatives, most recently volunteering at WordPlay, a local nonprofit helping kids with afterschool reading. Matthew recently moved back to his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. He holds a B.A. in Managerial Economics from Allegheny College.

Matthew joins the IVMF team on March 1st as a Program Manager for Community Advising and will be based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Initially Matthew will be assigned the PAServes Greater Pittsburgh market- a role he welcomes as a former Pittsburgh resident. He will also be assigned to support the SCServes Low Country market.

The experience and enthusiasm both Vincent and Matthew bring to their new roles will help to further the work already underway in Community Advising as well as support the expansion of advising services offered to individuals, organizations, and communities nationally.
