After 3 faithful years, Tami Fleming our former director, left us this past spring to have more time with her family at this stage in their lives. Our board began a search process for a new director with much prayer and faith that God would guide their decision. We are excited to invite Connie into our SFTSM family.
Connie resides in Waunakee, where she grew up. She lives there with her husband of 17 years and 2 children; a son 15 years old and a daughter 11 years old. Connie is a faithful member of Blackhawk Church where she has served in the youth ministry.
Connie has a Bachelor of Science degree in Hotel, Restaurant & Tourism Management and over 25 years of experience in the food industry; much of that as a Director of Food Services for school districts. She comes to us with experience in budgeting, supervision and facility maintenance which are all important to the daily operations of our home. While working with the school districts, Connie connected with the needs of children; raising funds for a free and reduced lunch program and teaching kids to cook.
As an introduction, Connie would like to share this with you:
“In the same way, let your light shine before people, so they can see the good things you do and praise your Father who is in heaven.” -Matthew 5:16
I believe that compassion is even more powerful than courage. With courage, you may be able to conquer, but with compassion you can heal and build. I am beyond excited to have a position where I can give back, lift others up, help people heal and make a difference in the lives of others. I don’t believe there is any greater job than that. God has opened every door to make this transition for me and I am so excited to see where the SFTSM team goes from here…we’ll continue to do great things in our community and strive to take our next steps to build an even stronger ministry.
Please join us in welcoming Connie Vacho to our family as we continue to lift homeless children and single moms up and out of homelessness.
