About FCCV

Fayette County Community Voices began in 2015, and we’re proud of the work we’ve done so far to help Fayette County flourish.

Our History

  • Our story begins when a small group of women, determined to make a difference in the future of Fayette County came together in July 2015.
  • Following the 2015 Purdue University conference for Fayette County Leadership, Cindy Hartman, former Educator with the Purdue Cooperative Extension Office, and Linda S. Fitzgerald, a local resident and a development consultant, formed Fayette County Women’s Voices.
  • In January 2016, the new organization hosted a women’s conference. The conference, led by Michael Wilcox of the Purdue University Center for Regional Development, was a success. The 80 women attendees learned about the community capitals approach to the community development process. These community capitals form our focus areas: Education & Literacy, Community Health & Natural Environment, Leadership for the Development of Public Spaces, and Social & Cultural Life.
  • Fayette County Women’s Voices officially became Fayette County Community Voices, Inc., an incorporated entity in the State of Indiana, in May 2017.
