Joe Becker, former Chairman of the Board (2017-2021), brings a real heart for making a difference in the lives of the people we serve. After a career in the theme park industry, Joe worked with the American Red Cross, where he led the organization’s national Disaster Relief for seven years and then the Red Cross units in the Mid Atlantic States. Joe is now retired, lives in Charlotte North Carolina with his wife Tammy and has three adult children, one of whom is a Catholic Priest. Joe believes that the combination of immediate relief, education, and investment in long-term sustainability will continue to make the most powerful impact on the amazingly resilient people of Haiti. In 2021 he was ordained as a Deacon in the Catholic Church.
