Board of Directors

Cradle of Hope’s board of directors is made up of four officers and members whose primary purpose is to provide oversight of the organization and to help raise funds.  The board utilizes a committee system comprised of three committees: Executive/Governance, Finance, and Development. Issues are delegated to committees with special expertise. The committees research and review each particular issue and make recommendations to the full board where all decisions are made by majority rule. All board members also participate in fundraising activities.
