"To serve and support individuals involved with the criminal justice system, primarily women and children, to prevent recidivism and promote productive crime free lives."
Carol has lived and worked in the city of Harrisburg since 1970, as a teacher and administrator for the Harrisburg School District for more than 30 years, and a volunteer on several nonprofit boards. She has been a home owner in uptown Harrisburg for 27 years and cares deeply about our underserved citizens, especially those returning home from incarceration.
With a giant leap of faith, Carol moved from being an officer on the Board of Directors to the CEO position for The PROGRAM on December 01, 2015 and served until January 23, 2017 in that role. At that time, she moved into a new Chief Operating Office position and is currently assisting with Promise Place and running the agency's Saturday Family Reunification Program. Carol finds the work to be very rewarding and loves working with the Parenting Inside Out Curriculum, as a way of inspiring and uplifting incarcerated parents. She is a strong advocate for second (or more) chances for Justice Involved Women and their families. She believes in the Serenity Prayer as a guiding principle.
