The nonprofit Family Promise of Santa Clarita Valley has expanded its board of directors to include four new members in 2018 – Katie Hill, Jeff Meyer, Steven Spiker and Mike Stevenson.

These directors bring a wealth of experience in community service as the nonprofit looks to expand programs and services to assist homeless families in the SCV.

She has a passion for the community and is excited to help Family Promise create new programs to address housing and funding needs for families in crisis.

Steven Spiker: After working in the entertainment industry for 38 years, Steve has decided to dedicate his “retirement” to helping families in the Santa Clarita Valley.

As a father, grandfather and active member of his church, Steve knows how important the family unit is and he has a passion for wanting to improve the quality of life for those who most need assistance.

As he says, “One of the most important things to me is to help children have the opportunity to be happy and healthy. Every child deserves a chance to succeed in life!”

Mike Stevenson: As pastor of Santa Clarita Seventh-Day Adventist Church, Mike has been a vocal advocate for Family Promise and its community-centered approach to supporting local homeless families.

Born in South Africa, Mike has traveled and lived in many countries around the globe and has a deep sense of commitment to bringing people together to make a positive difference in the world.

These four new board members join a team of dedicated volunteers who lead the local nonprofit: Laurie Ender (president), Amber Alexander, Dee Dee Jacobson, Diane McGrory, Jerrid McKenna, Walter McKinney, Melissa MacKinnon, Gregory Meza and Lance O’Keefe.

Ender speaks highly of Family Promise’s Board of Directors.

“This is an exceptional group of compassionate people who have stepped up to provide the resources and passion needed to tackle the heartbreaking issue of family homelessness in our community,” she said. “I’m so proud to be a part of this team.”

Family Promise has been in operation in the Santa Clarita Valley since 2011 and provides shelter, meals, support and case management for local homeless children and their families.

The organization partners with local businesses, faith communities, nonprofits and other agencies to assist these families 365 days a year.
