Executive Director Gary Fulton is Retiring

After three years of dedicated service as Haiti Outreach Ministries’ first Executive Director, Gary Fulton will be leaving his position as of November 30. Gary joined HOM after a distinguished career of service, including roles in pastoral leadership and health care administration. During his tenure at HOM, Gary has strengthened operational infrastructure, expanded and developed new partnerships, and overseen the successful launch of new HOM initiatives in economic development and health care. The Board of Directors is deeply grateful for Gary’s leadership and service to the people of Haiti.

While Gary looks forward to retirement and more time with his family, he will continue to remain an important part of HOM, serving the ministry as a volunteer.

The Board of Directors has unanimously approved Caroline Chambre Hammock as HOM’s new Executive Director, effective January 1. Caroline is no stranger to HOM, as she has served the ministry since 2018 in a variety of roles, including grant writing, communications, special projects, and most recently as Associate Director.

Caroline is a nonprofit leader with extensive domestic and international nonprofit experience. Prior to joining HOM, she worked at the Urban Ministry Center in Charlotte, serving as the Executive Director of Moore Place, a program for homeless adults. Caroline has also worked for the Peace Corps and the UN’s World Food Programme. She has a heart for servant leadership that brings together people from different cultures and backgrounds to serve God and each other.

HOM has come a long way from its roots some 30 years ago. Gary has carried us to a new level of involvement and ministry in Haiti, and Caroline will take us even further in our goal of sharing God’s love and the Good News of Christ through service and partnerships that assist the people of Haiti. We look forward to great things in following God’s plan for our organization.
