Stassa Mosley Harris, Community Action Wayne/Medina


Stassa Mosely Harris is an intake worker for the HEAP program at Community Action Wayne/Medina. Stassa has been an active OBB counselor for the past two years.  According to Donna Holmes of Community Action Wayne/Medina , clients often leave her office in tears, but they are tears of joy, because they leave with so much more than they ever expected to receive. Stassa is a perfect example of a counselor whose clients leave with their dignity intact while at the same time equipped with an understanding of their situation and what they need to do to follow up. She has expanded OBB tax services to offer additional access to tax appointments in Rittman, Lodi, and Orville. During OBB tax season 2015, Stassa completed nearly 400 tax applications, personally helping to refund more than $280,000 to the clients she served. Stassa demonstrates the character and dedication that exemplifies the Ohio Benefit Bank.  OBB Counselor of the Year, Stassa Mosley Harris.
