The CFFP welcomes our new Executive Director

Hello, friends. I’m extremely pleased to introduce to you our new Executive Director! Tavia Pitkanen, who lives in Minnesota, is experienced in the field of nonprofit management and a strong advocate for children’s rights.

Tavia brings with her fourteen years of experience in professional management. She has exemplified her passion for helping people through world-class nonprofit management, marketing orchestration, brand management and creation, training, cross-cultural relations, and aid work.

“I’m both honored and excited to partner with the talented Board of Directors, volunteers, and Board of Advisors of the CFFP who so generously give their time and energy,” says Tavia. “I’m also looking forward to getting to know each of you who care so much about the safety and protection of children, as we all seek to nurture them in our communities.”

Tavia adds, “I look forward to what the future holds for the CFFP, as we open this new chapter. I encourage you to stay in touch via our website and social media for updates and news on our work!”

Meanwhile, I am honored to serve on the organization’s Board of Directors, and we are all looking forward to the inspired changes ahead as we expand our programs and increase our outreach. Please welcome Tavia and pass along any questions or thoughts you have by emailing her at tpitkanen@childfriendlyfaith.org.

In gratitude,

Janet Heimlich, Board Member
