Little Rock Native Named WSF Executive Director
Together with the other members of the Board of Directors of the Wolfe Street Foundation of Little Rock, Arkansas I am pleased to announce that Joy Reynolds will become Executive Director on January 7, 2019. A Little Rock native, she joins the Wolfe Street Foundation after 7 years at Our House, where she served as the Director of Grants & Evaluation and was a member of the senior leadership team. Joy has a B.A. in English from UA Little Rock and a Masters in English from the University of Michigan. She is currently participating in Leadership Greater Little Rock as a member of Class XXXIV. For us, this day marks beginning of a new era in the life of Wolfe Street, one that will help us to better serve our community.--Tim Laughlin, Board President
A message from the new Executive Director: “I am honored to be chosen for this position. My vision for the Wolfe Street Foundation, in which we become a hub of recovery-related resources and opportunity, depends on three assets the Wolfe Street Foundation already has: an enthusiastic board of directors, a dedicated team of staff and volunteers, and a supportive community that shows up day after day to carry the message to those suffering from alcoholism and addiction. Together we can build on the Foundation’s 36-year history of service to the community as we create new pathways to recovery through outreach and education. I look forward to working with the WSF community to achieve these goals. And I hope to see you all at our Red Carpet Gala on Saturday, February 23rd!”
The Mission of the Wolfe Street Foundation, Inc. is to provide facilities, education and outreach for the Central Arkansas community for persons and their families seeking recovery from alcoholism and addiction.
