Meet the People Behind The Faces!
Dr. Phillip D. Fletcher
Founder and Executive Director
Phillip Fletcher founded CoHO in 2007 with the dream to see individuals flourish and discover meaning in life. When he isn't running a nonprofit or molding minds as a professor at Philander Smith College, Phil can be found reading, building Legos, and collecting comic books.
"If I fail, I will do so while doing great things."
Chief Operating Officer
Tara came to CoHO originally as a volunteer in 2021. It was immediately apparent that her energy and love for the community would benefit CoHO and our mission. She quickly rose from volunteer director to become our Operations Director and is responsible for handling CoHO's daily affairs.
"In serving my community, I've discovered that the greatest strength lies in the unity of hearts, where every act of kindness is a step towards a brighter future."
CoHO Case Manager
John came on staff at CoHO in the fall of 2021, though he had worked previously with CoHO's Hope Home back in 2017. Today, John handles case management and the implementation of various services under our CoHO CARES program.
"Act in pursuit of justice, have an obsession with mercy, and walk humbly in everything you do."
Nutrition & Small Market Director
Lana joined CoHO in February 2023 as our new Nutrition Director and leader of the Small Market. If she isn't at the Small Market, you can often find her working in the community garden or foraging for fresh edible food to bring to the community!
"To know even on life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." - Bessie A. Stanley
Hope Home Director
When Billy first started working at CoHO as an intern, we knew he would be a valuable and much-loved addition to the team. His dedication and passion for serving our community made him the natural choice for Hope Home Director, where he helps men get off the streets and take the necessary steps to lead a fulfilling life.
"Where love exists, hope is alive."
Strategic Development VISTA
Caleb joined the CoHO team in January 2023 as our Strategic Development VISTA. His role in CoHO involves data collection through the development of surveys, audits, and questionnaires which he uses for grant applications and program development. In his free time, Caleb enjoys hiking with his German Shepard, Berlin.
"One can not be just a ball in a mountain stream, or a leaf on the wind. We must engage ourselves in life, and only when we do are we perfectly human."
