Cyndee Albertson

Executive Director

It is an honor to join Family Promise as its Executive Director. I am passionate about giving children and their families the guidance and resources needed to rebuild their lives so they can become self-sufficient and overcome homelessness. It has been my life's desire to help those less fortunate live their life to the fullest. To achieve this, I ensure families receive thoughtful guidance and support, emphasizing permanent housing solutions and life skills to ensure this is the last generation to experience homelessness.
 
It is a privilege and blessing to have been selected by the Board of Directors to lead Family Promise of OC at this very exciting time. Thank you for your past and continued support of Family Promise.  I look forward to getting to know each of you personally, please come visit us at our Family Resource Center, located at the First Presbyterian Church in Anaheim. I can be reached at Albertson@FamilyPromiseOC.org or by calling (714) 353-0428.
