Guest Advisory Committee

Home / Guest Advisory Committee

Led by our Director of Case Management, Kate Oresic, the Guest Advisory Committee allows Family Promise to benefit from the knowledge and experiences of our former guests. We are happy to include at least one former guest to serve on our Board of Directors and their input helps shape organizational policies, review new initiatives and ensure that all voices are heard within the organization. Their contributions have a demonstrable impact on the level of support we are able to provide to the families we serve.

They give back to our affiliate by sharing their journey at speaking engagements and fundraising events, assisting at the holidays and engaging with other families in our Shelter Program.

Committee Members:

  • Joshua Brown
  • Debbie Castelli
  • Tennelle Cathcart
  • Diana Green
  • Lauren McMillian
  • Shontell Roberts
  • Danielle Velez
  • Javitia Young

Some quotes from committee members when asked what they hoped to gain from serving on the committee:

  • Self-empowered
  • Fulfilled
  • More involved with the community
  • Happy that I am finally able to give back
  • Satisfaction in knowing that the families are making the same great choice that I did about accepting the invitation to participate in Family Promise’s Shelter Program.
  • To be able to share my experience so families can see that they too can succeed.
