Susan D. Kiely
Through my childhood my mother was single and together we moved 13 times in my grade school years. It is because of this life experience that I have sought educational opportunities to equip me to serve the marginalized. My journey to service started in 1965 at a Head Start program in Bristol, Pennsylvania. It has been my joy to encourage others to become “Who God created them to be”.
Early in our marriage (1970) my husband, Leo, and I decided that I would be the one to stoke the home fires while he traveled up the corporate ladder. Through these 47 years I have been given the opportunity to be a full time volunteer. I have worked in government-run senior housing, homeless shelters, and food banks. I have orchestrated fundraisers for low-income housing, school districts and 501c3 organizations.
In 2005 I took my first trip to the impoverished country of India. It was on this trip that I realized that I had the skill set to help the less fortunate. Armed with life experiences and a love of all of God’s people, I developed a plan to provide programs that would enable single mothers to learn skills that would make them employable.
