Dear Friend of Attack Poverty,

The Attack Poverty Board of Directors has named Brandon Baca as Interim CEO, and he joins the organization’s Board of Directors. After joining Attack Poverty in 2012, Brandon served as Senior Director for Programs and Development, Senior Director of Operations, and most recently as Chief Operating Officer. The Board has full confidence in Brandon and believes he is very qualified to take over leadership of the organization, given his long tenure at AP and established relationships with employees and external partners.

Attack Poverty remains focused on its mission to support the community through its “Friends locations” by delivering quality programs where they are most needed. As we work through recovering from the recent tragedy, the mission of Attack Poverty remains unchanged – to empower people to attack poverty in their life and community by strengthening under-resourced communities through spiritual growth, education, revitalization, and basic needs. The AP staff is fully committed to this mission and we have been blessed with, and continue to receive strong support from, our key financial partners.

We look forward to sharing our continued progress with you in the days to come and are very grateful for all of your support.

With Sincere Appreciation,
Pete Rigsby, Chairman
Attack Poverty Board of Directors
