Rick Fitzgerald was hired in 1988. For 30 years, he’s served as Evening Supervisor, Assistant Farm Manager, Chaplain, Purchasing Agent, Programs Director, Director of Fundraising and Agency Relations, and Director of Philanthropy. He’s been an integral part of developing many of the programs and services that are in place today. Rick built invaluable relationships with the community, including government, private, and faith-based organizations.
Rick has helped the Mission remain committed to Christ-centered values while growing programs and services. “I gave my life to what I believe was a call from God to marry the best practices of social work with the best of Christian social ministry,” he says.
He’ll continue with some of the special projects he began while here, and is thrilled to have more time to spend with his wife of 43 years, children and grandchildren.
“I look forward to the next chapter of my life, following God as the adventure continues.”
