Jann Holden, Interim Executive Director
Jann Holden joined The CARE Center Staff in November of 2016 focusing on Public Relations, Fundraising and Grant Writing. In May of 2018, she became the Director of Operations for The CARE Center Thrift Store. As of August 2018, the Board of Directors asked Jann to be the Interim Executive Director. She has her Bachelors of Science degree from the University of Houston. She married her husband, Chris, in 1992 and they moved to Huntsville and have two children, Ryann, 22 and Mattie, 20.
Jann has worked for over 25 years in Management, Sales and Marketing. She brings a lot of energy and fresh ideas to the mission of The CARE Center. Jann and her family are members of Cove United Methodist Church, and a member of the groundbreaking team of volunteers to start The CARE Center in 2000.
Jann's heart has always been to spread the love of Christ to others. She has been a volunteer in Student Ministry, Prayer Ministry, Women's Ministry, Children’s Ministry and Hospitality for Cove Church. She worked with Bruce Martin at 100X Church and The CornerStone Initiative for 3 years.
Andrea, a lifelong resident of Owens Cross Roads & proud graduate of New Hope High School, dreamed of one day becoming an elementary teacher. However, upon entering college she declared herself a Business Major. Andrea worked in the financial industry for eleven years & owned her own decorating and design business before joining The CARE Center’s team in January 2009. As The CARE Center’s Education Coordinator, Andrea has combined her knowledge of business and finance, her love for education and children, and her desire to encourage and serve others while she supports many CARE Center ministries. In addition to coordinating and overseeing all education initiatives, Andrea also writes & manages budgets including The CARE Center’s largest grant, including the 21st CCLC grant, which affords us The NHCLC (a partnership with NHES).
Andrea serves as a child advocate in our community & often finds herself serving as a parent, teacher, school and community advocate. Andrea believes in The CARE Center’s mission, to provide our neighbors the resources needed to develop and discover their own God given talents. Andrea feels completely blessed and honored to have the opportunity to assist and encourage some of our youngest neighbors daily in hopes of a brighter future!
Married to Kevin, they are the proud parents of a handsome son, Wesley, who will soon graduate from New Hope High School and plans to attend Harding University in the fall; and a beautiful daughter, Alexandrea, who is a member of New Hope High School’s Marching Indians Colorguard and Winterguard. As a family, they attend Owens Cross Roads Church of Christ where they are very involved with the Youth Ministry, Lads to Leaders Program, and mission work-both local and abroad.
But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint. - Isaiah 40:31
