These are exciting times as Faithful Friends is growing! Hiring our first Development Director is a big step forward as we look to secure additional financial partnerships in the community which will allow us to create more mentor connections. The more mentor matches we make, the the more children in Portland will have the transformational friendship of a caring adult as they grow and mature.
Lynsey Redman comes to us from Michigan where she has been an active member of the community where she and her husband have been raising their twin teen daughters and a teenage son. While originally from Florida where she studied International Business, she later received another degree in Accounting from Eastern Michigan University. The local school system in Onsted was the beneficiary of Lynsey’s multiple ongoing efforts to improve their infrastructure where she successfully ran fundraisers and secured grants. As a passionate children’s advocate, she later assisted the Boys and Girls Club in fundraising and more.
As a newer resident to the greater Portland area, Lynsey and her family are enjoying all that the region has to offer. You may bump into her and her family on a local trail exploring over a weekend, so don’t feel shy to say hello!
