Do nothing from selfish ambition of conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4
Everyone who works at Hope Farm has a story and everyone who chooses the call to serve at Hope Farm is not serving by accident. As we welcome more boys to our three campuses, we have also welcomed new staff including our new Chief Operating Officer, Kevin E. Foster and our new Director of Development, Rebecca Leppert.
With a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Education from Prairie View A&M University and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the University of Texas in Arlington, Kevin has been in nonprofit leadership for more than 25 years. Before joining Hope Farm, Kevin served as Vice President of Facilities for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County with duties ranging from management of capital projects, fleet management, and primary facility improvements. His passion for “enabling youth to reach their full potential” with the Boys and Girls Clubs will translate perfectly to his work at Hope Farm. Prior to this role, Kevin was the Vice President of Community Relations and Facility Management Projects.
Rebecca, who came to Hope Farm from Pro Players Foundation, is also quite familiar with the nonprofit sector and work serving children. As the Chief Operating Officer at Pro Players Foundation, Rebecca led her team to serve and enrich the lives of the underserved focusing on children who come from hard places. Rebecca believes that anyone can be empowered to change the life of a child in need and has chosen to dedicate her time advocating for children and nonprofits that serve them. She holds a BA in Political Science from Barry University and an MPSA in Public Management from Texas A&M’s George H.W. Bush School with a certificate in nonprofit management and leadership programming.
With tenures at successful organizations who serve children in need, Kevin and Rebecca bring unique experience and perspective to the Hope Farm family that is invaluable to the work that lays ahead.
“Hope Farm is a mission-driven, Christ-led organization that provides an opportunity for me to serve young men and their families in a very impactful life changing way!”
– Kevin Foster
“HOPE Farm is an organization that invests not only in a boy’s educational and physical well-being, but their social and emotional growth as well. I wanted to be a part of an organization that fosters the development of good Christ-centered leaders of the future.”
– Rebecca Leppert
