Tracy McKeithen joined Family Promise in August of 2011. Tracy brings an extensive background in social services, with 19 years experience in program management, job training, and life skills for homeless families, including the hard to house and hard to employ populations. Tracy formerly served as Program Manager with Heartland Alliance for their Student & Family Support initiative and Homeless Prevention & Rapid Housing program. McKeithen holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology and a master’s degree in psychology.
What drew Ms. McKeithen to Family Promise was the model of keeping the family together and providing care for the whole family as a unit unlike shelters where spouses and older male children are typically separated. “I was also very impressed to meet the many volunteers who ‘pay it forward’ by volunteering with families”, says McKeithen. “I fell in love with Family Promise – it’s so much more than where I work”.
