Tammy is our part time Administrative Assistant. She is a married, mom of 2 teenage boys, owns a local home business, and is a member of Lighthouse Alliance Community Church. Being raised by a Mom who always taught her to help others she had been looking for a part time position that would fulfill both "job" and "helping others". Tammy is a Program Director for a one week program each summer at a children's camp and is where she met Elizabeth when the camp chose Family Promise of SOC as their charity for the week. Coincidentally, a couple months later the Administrative Assistant position opened up & it was a perfect fit for what Tammy was looking for. As she continues her work with FPSOC she commits herself to Romans 12:13 "When God's people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality."
Elizabeth has been with FPSOC since 2013 first as the case manager and then moved into the Executive Director role in late 2016. She holds a Master's in Therapy from Drexel University specializing in Creative Arts Therapies. She has worked in the nonprofit field for over 12 years and has extensive experience in trauma and developmental work. She came across Family Promise by "chance" from a previous job. Her passion for helping others and wanting to make a difference within the community made the transition a great fit.
