Local Mortgage Assistance Nonprofit Brings Former Ryan House Executive Director On Board
(Scottsdale, Ariz.) – Care Fund, a local nonprofit that keeps families in their homes with mortgage or rent assistance while they care for their seriously ill or injured child, has announced Alyssa Crockett as its new executive director.
“Care Fund is set to grow, and Alyssa has the experience, values and passion to grow Care Fund strategically,” said Bill Rogers, CEO of Homeowners Financial Group and co-founder of Care Fund. “With the board, Alyssa will ensure the Care Fund is a bridge to a stronger, more stable family environment for all Arizonans.”
Crockett was formerly the executive director at Ryan House, where she guided the organization to its first year in the black. She transformed an annual budget shortfall of $800,000 in 2014 to a balanced budget of $2.5 million by the end of 2016’s fiscal year.
“Ryan House grew to become a national model of pediatric palliative care while Alyssa was its executive director, and it is now a sustainable, thriving organization serving many of the same families as the Care Fund,” said Rogers.
Care Fund was co-founded eight years ago by Pat Lamb, president of Homeowners Financial Group, whose child passed away from an unexpected illness. The 501c3 nonprofit grants mortgage or rent payments to families during financial hardships. The history behind the Care Fund is a heartfelt collaboration between numerous local and national companies, employees, volunteers and a giving donor community who all help to support families by keeping them in their homes.
“I am a true believer in the power of community,” Crockett said. “Care Fund’s community of donors makes sure a parent never has to choose between working to pay a mortgage and caring for his or her child.”
Crockett has held positions and consulted in politics, education and healthcare in Arizona and California during her 20-year career in the nonprofit industry. Originally from Washington, D.C., she graduated from the University of Arizona in 1997 with a degree in English Literature. Alyssa is the mother of three children: Piper (14), Charlie (10) and Sam (7).
