Cyndee is our wonderful Executive Director of Family Promise of Orange County. Cyndee is passionate about furthering the mission of Family Promise in order to help as many families experiencing homelessness as possible.
While Cyndee is an Orange County native, she previously resided in London, England for two years. While living abroad, she had the unique experience of working as a Psychiatric Social Worker. She holds both a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and an MBA. With 30 years of leadership experience under her belt, Cyndee has dedicated the last 12 years of her career to the direction of high-performing programs that are designed to end homelessness, food insecurity, and multi-generational poverty.
She has led Family Promise of Orange County since November 2017, and is a big reason for the growth that the program has seen over the past few years. She is responsible for ensuring and maintaining Family Promise of Orange County’s service quality and financial sustainability. She has achieved this by successfully diversifying the organization’s fund development efforts. In 2020, Family Promise of Orange County served 65 families, which is 35% more families than in 2019. In the challenging year that was 2020, Ms. Albertson, her three employees, and hundreds of volunteers ensured 269 Orange County residents, including 170 children, had food, supplies, and most importantly, homes.
Outside of her duties at Family Promise of Orange County, Cyndee resides in Placentia with her husband, Mike. Together they have four adult children, three of whom are still in college. In her spare time she is an avid runner and continues on her quest to run a marathon in every state.
