My name is Matt Wagner, and I am the Executive Director for Family Promise of Harrisburg Capital Region. I am excited about this opportunity because I believe Family Promise is a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone to change their lives, and I am excited to be a part of that.
I believe that organizations such as Family Promise are the best vehicles for communities to change lives and really that's what it is all about. Family Promise is the vehicle for changing people's lives, but our supporters are the real heroes, and I'm excited to be working with you!
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.
