Monday, May 9th, The Rotary Club of Sandy Springs will have Francis Horton, CEO of Community Assistance Center as its guest speaker.
The Community Assistance Center (CAC) brings together the Sandy Springs and Dunwoody communities to provide compassionate assistance to neighbors in need by providing financial support, helping to meet basic needs and promoting self-reliance.
Francis Horton was trained early in his career as an attorney with his J.D. from Mississippi College School of Law and a Bachelor of Science degree from Mississippi State. He and Angie have 4 children, and 10 grandchildren, and they look forward to being a strong part of the Sandy Springs and Dunwoody communities where he can share his global experiences in his own community with support from his family. He spent 20 years living overseas and addressing issues of poverty through community development as well as leading responses to a myriad of disasters. From his many years working in Africa, Asia, and Pakistan with International Mission Board, Samaritan's Purse and others Horton has a proven track record of building, training, managing and inspiring multi-cultural teams. This work has included hundreds of volunteers across countries diverse in race, religion and ethnicity.
Francis exemplifies servant leadership with his extensive background in nonprofits both domestically and in developing countries in the field of community development. He understands both the circumstances and conditions leading to poverty, and more importantly, has years of frontline experience designing and implementing models to help people recover from natural disasters, food insecurity, inadequate housing, and poor access to education and sustainable jobs.
