Kathleen Wagner is a longtime resident of Victor along with her husband Dan and grown sons Jim, Tom, and Mike. Kathleen is a former partner of WGT Performance Consulting. An active member of First Presbyterian Church in Victor, Kathleen has pursued many community volunteer activities over the years that support her mission to improve the lives of others and engage others to do the same, with a particular focus on leveraging the collective strength of the faith community. Leadership roles have included the Victor/ Farmington Food Cupboard, Volunteer NOW, Field Trips to Futures, and Maggie's Kids summer camp. Kathleen is particularly excited about FPOC as it links faith communities across the county to tackle a county-wide issue - the collective power of working together to make long-term change.
Lauren Lamb has lived in Geneva for more than 20 years. She is married and has two amazing kids. Lauren is a member of The Presbyterian Church in Geneva and works as an educator at Geneva Middle School. Her passion for FPOC comes from a desire to serve the community and a population that she interacts with every day. She looks for the opening, the way through, the gift inside each challenge. Family Promise of Ontario County is that path, that gift inside the challenge. Working together we are stronger, together we can and do make a difference in the lives of the children of our community.
Eileen Tiberio lives in Canandaigua and attends Zion Fellowship. She is the Commissioner of Social Services for Ontario County and is involved with FPOC because homelessness is a complex issue facing our community. The faith community wants to make a difference but often finds the complexity of homelessness daunting. FPOC will bring these two pieces together with a proven strategy to make a meaningful difference in the lives of children and families. The road to success is always under construction. – Arnold Palmer
