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!”
