Dear Friends of The PROGRAM, “It’s About Change”,
As you know AliceAnne Frost has resigned from her position as CEO, effective Friday April 14. AliceAnne stepped into the CEO role in January 2017 with a vision to nurture the staff and the community. Leading with deep compassion, she built a culture of belonging and understanding among the team and welcomed community engagement to make the best decisions for the organization.
AliceAnne shares, “I truly believe the best days of The PROGRAM are ahead of us because of the collaborative work of our team and each one of you. I could not have been more fortunate to have the opportunity to work with such exceptional leaders.”
The Board of Directors expresses its sincerest appreciation for the positive contributions AliceAnne has made and the opportunities she has created for The PROGRAM. To ensure we uphold and build upon the foundation laid by AliceAnne, we believe it in the best interest of the organization, our staff, and the community we serve, to appoint board member, Kay Gore to the role of Interim CEO. We believe the appointment of Kay as Interim CEO will afford our Board of Directors the opportunity and time needed to identify our next CEO.
Kay has served on the Board of Directors of The PROGRAM since 2019. Kay has over twenty years of human services experience. She is a graduate of the University of West Florida and Liberty University and is the Manager for Community Relations and Outreach at PA Health and Wellness. As Manager for Community Relations and Outreach, Kay works diligently to identify how to best to meet the needs of the participants of PA Health and Wellness. Kay currently resides in the Dauphin County area and in her spare time, she can be found volunteering, spending time with family and her dog Karmen.
“I am honored to have been asked to serve as Interim CEO as the Board of Directors continues the process of permanently filling the position. AliceAnne has built a great team here, and I have every confidence in our staff’s ability to make this a smooth transition for the clients of our programs,” states Kay.
