This month, FCS appointed longtime supporter Jenny Hovermill as Vice President of the Board. Jenny, a board member since 2013, is an Assistant Attorney General in the Criminal Appeals Division Office of the Attorney General. A big part of her interest in and appreciation for FCS stems from her work in the criminal justice system.
“FCS serves people who are facing, or have faced, traumatic events in their lives — and helping that underserved community is a challenge too many people shy away from,” Jenny said. “FCS empowers individuals and families to break free from that cycle and get the help they need. I’m proud to champion that type of an organization.”
