Brian Iverson, President
My wife, Sue, and I moved to Lawrence in 1989 from Denver CO. We thought we would stay a couple of years and then go back to Denver, but here we are almost 30 years later. We have been blessed with a wonderful son and a fulfilling life in Lawrence, it is now our home.
In 2008, as a member of the Leadership Lawrence class, my eyes were opened. This is a caring and active community, with many organizations working daily to make positive impacts on the lives of others. I met people who tirelessly work to improve the lives of others, with affordable/free healthcare, keep elderly and disabled in their own homes as long as possible, feeding those in crisis, helping those who need mental health care, and helping with early childhood education. I was called to help where I can.
Family Promise is special to me because of the children. Kids are such a gift, and anything I can do the help improve the lives of kids is an honor. The staff and board of Family Promise are dedicated and engaged, and I am in constant awe of the progress and innovation of this talented group. I am delighted to be a small part of Family Promise, and the opportunity to help our families.
