Our Staff

We’re hiring! – Executive Director

Our founding Executive Director, Krissy Marshall, will be staying at home to rear her new baby starting this fall. Therefore, we are looking for a dynamic and skilled individual to take FPHCR to the next level! If you or someone you know is interested, please look at the 2017 FPHCR Executive Director job description for information on the position and how to apply. Thank you!

Kristina Marshall, MSW – Executive Director

Krissy is local to the Central PA area. She grew up in New Cumberland and went to James Madison to compete in track and field and study social work. She then went to the University of Pittsburgh to get her Master’s degree in Social Work. Two weeks after graduation, Krissy started as the Network Director of Family Promise in 2010. Family Promise has been an incredible journey and learning experience. Krissy has been challenged and enjoyed watching as the program expands and grows through many people’s hard work, dedication, partnership, and trial and error. She is passionate about meeting people where they are at, helping them to see their own strengths, and then learning to use those strengths to meet goals. Watching a person learn to trust themselves is one of the most enjoyable experiences in the world for her.

Krissy lives in Mechanicsburg with her loving husband, Matt, and high-energy puppy, Dexter Dog. They attend First UMC in Mechanicsburg where Krissy serves on the Evangelism committee. She also coaches track and field at Red Land High School.

Previously, Rafé was an elementary guidance counselor for ten years at the Mechanicsburg Area School District. Rafé is looking forward to helping the Family Promise guests set and achieve goals that will allow them to reach their full potential. She is the mother of two active boys, Max, age 12 and Sam, age 9. Away from the office, Rafé is very involved at her church, Camp Hill United Methodist, where she serves as Co-League Director for Upward Sports, and helps with children’s Sunday school.
