In his new role as FPHCR’s Executive Director, Wagner will oversee and supervise FPHCR operations, work closely with staff members to identify areas of growth and weakness, partner with the Board to articulate and implement the vision of FPHCR, and participate in important committee work. He will also act as the face of FPHCR in the media and through partnerships and will build relationships with community partners to ensure FPHCR can continue its life-changing work.
“My career in the nonprofit world has shown me that organizations such as FPHCR, with the proper community support, are the best vehicle for making a difference in the lives of those who need it most, and I look forward to continuing FPHCR’s legacy in doing so,” Wagner said.
Wagner will also be charged with leading an expansion of the Road to Success Program at FPHCR and help more individuals enter into careers by removing barriers such as transportation and child care. This is work that former Executive Director, Angela Mountz, is particularly eager to see come to fruition, as she believes the program has the potential to positively impact the lives of countless community members in need."I am very excited to be a part of FPHCR’s mission of serving families who recently lost their homes. If the COVID pandemic has taught us anything, it is that every family is vulnerable to homelessness, and I am excited about working with our current community partners, and identifying new partners, who will join us in making sure every family has a home, a livelihood, and the chance to build a better future together."
Angela has spent the last 10+ years serving the community, specifically pregnant and parenting families. She has served as a volunteer for Family Promise for 2 years as an Evening Host. Because she is passionate about seeing people rise above their situation and succeed in their goals, Angela is excited to come on as a staff member and have the opportunity to help the families in a deeper way. She graduated from the University of Phoenix in Spring 2019. As a teen mom, she did not get the opportunity to go to college right out of high school. This milestone has taken her 18 years to complete. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences with an emphasis on Families and Children. She is currently a Certified Recovery Specialist as well as Person-Center Trained. She believes that each person has unlimited potential; they just need to be given the key to unlocking it and the encouragement to succeed.
Angela currently serves as the Assistant Pastor of Outreach for a local congregation in the New Cumberland area. She serves as the Executive Director of a parenting and pregnancy ministry within the church. She also enjoys offering Mindful Painting experiences where she walks people through healing using creative expression. She is passionate about giving a hand up and working with the community she lives in. At home she is married and the mother of two grown girls. She loves watching superhero movies with her husband and doing crafts. She also enjoys not only being a crazy cat lady but a crazy bunny lady.
My name is Stacey Coldren, and I am the Case Manager for Family Promise. I have been dreaming of a position like this with Family Promise for about 5 years now. I am a graduate of the program, so I know firsthand how Family Promise helps those in need.
During my years out of the program I bought my own home, got married, and went back to school! Family Promise was the light when I needed it the most.
My goal is to help our families feel the same reassurance and support like I did: to bring out the best in them and help them find direction.
Make sure you keep a look out for our events and different ways to help! You never know who you may be helping.
