Board of Directors


Our Board is made up of dynamic community leaders, seasoned professionals, and rising young executives. Some have served on the board over many years, while others are new friends. A few hold a deep personal connection to our programs, but many came to know the agency through a business associate. They represent a multitude of vocations and occupations, and hail from cities and towns across the area.

They are a diverse group, yet they share a simple and singular mission: to give children and families at risk a chance to heal, and a reason to hope.
