Welcome Joann Temple

I began my administrative career at DuPont in the Photo Products Department.  Here I enjoyed streamlining operations and providing quality customer service.  Troubleshooting problems and developing innovative solutions seem to be part of my nature.  I have always liked challenges.

My spirit of volunteering began at DuPont Pharmaceuticals.  I volunteered for various opportunities within Special Olympics.  Through United Way, Days of Caring, I had the opportunity to work with the Emmaus House and other non-profit agencies.  I am a volunteer at Kelly Heinz Grundner Brain Tumor Foundation.  I am currently on the Board of Directors at Freedom Center for Independent Living.  I am also an active member of Immanuel Episcopal Church On The Green in New Castle, DE.

My husband, Joe, is employed by Siemens as a Production Specialist.  We have 1 daughter, Kirsten, who is a stay-at-home Mom, and is actively involved with the Kelly Heinz Grundner Brain Tumor Foundation.  Our beloved daughter, Elizabeth, passed away in 2007 from Brain Cancer, at the age of 27.  She is sorely missed.  We have four beautiful grandsons, with a new grandbaby on the way.

I am very excited about my being selected as the Program Assistant for Family Promise.  It is impossible not to be inspired by the families.  I can’t wait to research all the things they need to get back on their feet.  It will be my pleasure in this job to support the existing programs for the families, but also to create some new ones that will bring lasting improvements to their lives.
