Board Chair and Executive Director

Lee Anne studied Psychology at the University of South Carolina and has several years of experience as a project manager. She also has experience on staff at Grace Church both as a Children’s Ministry Director and as Director of Care & Recovery. Seeing Front Porch Housing grow out of the need of one member at Grace Church into a full-fledged supportive community has been one of her greatest joys.

People were patient with me when I was fearful of trusting others and continued to support me even when I didn’t fully understand why. I get the chance to turn and support now. What a privilege to care for others with the same care given to me.

Lead Housing Coordinator

Jess has a bachelor’s degree in Religion as well as her master’s in Christian Ministries. She has ten years of experience in higher education working in the area of residence life. In addition to her work at Front Porch Housing, she also teaches online high school Bible classes. She is excited to help make residents feel warm and welcomed in our supportive community.

I do what I do because the Lord has changed my life and he calls us to carry one another's burdens. The individuals we serve are usually carrying a burden that is too heavy to bear on their own. One way I can emulate Christ is by coming alongside our residents and providing support to help them carry those burdens.
