FIRM is pleased to announce three additions to the Board of Directors in 2015. Please welcome them to the FIRM family and pray for them as they lead FIRM’s vision for years into the future. Each new board member brings unique skills into the organization as well as a passion for the work we do.

Executive Director, Zachary Darrah says, “I look forward to working with our new members of the Board of Directors at FIRM. I believe that Xee Yang will be able to give us insight and guidance as we try to move children in refugee families toward academic success. Pastor Tou Her will help us connect with the Hmong church community and will be working on developing the Hmong Pastor Network at FIRM. Dr. Khampha Thephavong (starting this month) will be essential to FIRM in our efforts to best serve and reach the Laotian community both in Fresno and throughout the United States. Each of these new members are valuable assets to the future vision of our organization.”
