Holly's House in Evansville, Indiana, announced Kristine Cordts as its new Executive Director on Wednesday.

According to a press release from Holly's House, Cordts' background consists of a 20-year career in nonprofits and policy.

She studied Political Science and Public Administration at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, after which she assumed roles in state policy with Illinois Emergency Management Agency, Illinois Community College Board, and the Illinois Workforce Investment Board.

During that time, Cordts cultivated programs throughout Illinois in hazard mitigation, workforce development/education and training, and Adult Ed and Family Literacy in both public education and nonprofits.

Cordts moved to Evansville 11 years ago in 2009, where she partnered to facilitate greater impacts in the areas of healthcare, housing, community development, and social enterprise.

She joins Holly's House after five years with the local nonprofit Karma Collection.

“I am incredibly honored to work with an organization known for putting children first in our community. The dedication of this exceptional team and our partner organizations unites the resources of this community around victims and their families to bring healing and hope," said Cordts.

Holly’s House is a non-residential victims advocacy center providing services for victims of child abuse, domestic violence, and sexual assault in southwest Indiana.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
