Jacki Ezell, Transitional Housing Program Director

Jacki joined River of Refuge as a volunteer, after retiring from DST Systems as a Client Relations Consultant in 2013. Her thirty years of business experience, dedication, and shared vision quickly lead to a staff position at River of Refuge. Jacki studied management and human relations at MidAmerica Nazarene University, graduating in 2003.

She previously developed and ran the Family Assistance Program, which helped homeless families primarily living in motels. When the dream of our Transitional Housing Program became a reality, she worked as a case manager for two years. Jacki was then promoted to Program Director, responsible for the daily operation of the Transitional Housing Program.
