Geleen joined the national Family Promise team in 2014, as the Executive Director for the Union County Program. She has 15 years of experience in nonprofit management and development, working with homeless families and individuals in need.

“I love working for the Family Promise Program, we bring families in need together with families who want to serve, and the conversations and friendships that ensue truly build a strong community. Every day, I am inspired by our families, as they have lost their home and most of their material possessions, but still greet us with a smile each day. That gift of themselves is priceless and is a reminder that all you truly need is love.”
“One day, I will complete the musical about homelessness that I have been writing for the last ten years!”
