Bruce Christensen, Executive Director, and Dana Peterson, Director of Human Resources, of Mountain Valley, discuss these two projects.&nbsp;<br /> Mon, 25 Nov 2013 19:42:42 +0000 Cornelia Carpenter 10750 at http://aspenpublicradio.org Non-Profit in the Spotlight: Mountain Valley Developmental Services, Part 4
