STAFF

ERIC CREEL, PRESIDENT

Eric came to The Foundation in late 2017 from The Children’s Home of Lubbock. He initially served at The Home as a House Parent alongside his wife, Larinda. After adopting two children, Eric began work telling the story and raising funds for The Home as a Development Officer. “I’ve been involved in ministry for most of my life, and this work of advocating for and supporting wounded children is a natural extension of that. Meeting big-hearted people and helping them connect their financial resources to their passion for helping others is so rewarding!” Eric and his wife stay busy with their own five children.

JAY HANLEY, DIRECTOR OF PLANNED GIVING

Jay began work as Director of Planned Giving at The Children’s Home Foundation in January of 2020. Jay has a real heart for this work, devoting the past decade of his life to caring for wounded children, both directly as a house parent, & then as a Director of Advancement & Church Relations for a local children’s home. “It is a joy to work with people who love God and love helping children in need.”

KRISTAL WILSON, OFFICE MANAGER

Kristal began working with The Children’s Home Foundation in March, 2018 as the Office Manager. “One of the main reasons I came to work here is because of the Christian values and ministry authentically demonstrated through each employee.” She previously worked at Wayland Baptist University for 10 years as an Academic Advisor/Evaluator for the Plainview and Lubbock campuses.
