Cherish Cronmiller, MVCAP’s leader since August 2017, who was placed on paid administrative leave earlier this month, will assist the agency through the end of the year as a program liaison.

Miami Valley CAP has programs in nine area counties primarily focused on combating poverty and helping low-income households with housing services and utility assistance, according to the agency.

Most recently, Cronmiller directed the agency’s assistance to those affected by recent crises in the Dayton area, including the Memorial Day tornadoes and August mass shooting in the Oregon District.
