Meet Our Staff
Lindsey Mccamy | executive director
Born and raised in Dalton, GA, I attended Auburn University where I majored in Landscape Architecture. I have been living in Gainesville since 1998. My husband, Ward McCamy, works at Bank of America as a Senior Vice President. We have three children. Carter, Kate, and Charlie. As avid Auburn fans, we love to watch games together. I am an active member at Gainesville First UMC.
One of my favorite aspects of this ministry is coming in contact with different volunteers and families on a daily basis. The best part of my job is seeing families turn around their lives and regain their independence when the rest of the world says it is impossible.
laura sumner | family advocate
After graduating from Emory University, I received a Masters in Social Work from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and currently hold a license in Clinical Social Work. Prior to having children, I practiced case management and social work at Floyd Rehab Hospital in Rome, Georgia and Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Since returning to Gainesville, I've been a substitute teacher, Forensic Interviewer, a Sunday School teacher and active in P. T. A. and Arts in Schools. I've also published a children's book, IKE’S Brief History of Gainesville, with my father. I’m married to Sean Sumner and have three boys. As a native of Gainesville, I have seen many ways this community reaches out to serve its residents and Family Promise follows that great tradition. I'm thankful for the opportunity to work with the staff and volunteers to make the future of our clients better and brighter.
Lynette Croy | Program Coordinator
I was born and raised in Atlanta as the second daughter of 4 children and have called Hall County home for almost 30 years. After driving to Atlanta for the past 16 years I decided it was time to redirect my attention to finding a job in the Hall County community and blessed that GOD had his hand on the timing of the Program Coordinator coming available and ultimately joining the Family Promise staff.
I am married to Robert Croy, who works for Hall County, and have two daughters, Erin and Katie, and eight grandchildren! My passions include being outdoors and working in my yard, entertaining, and anything that involves sewing. Add to that my lifelong love of music more recently as a Worship Leader, solo artist, and member of a southern gospel trio. I feel that we should give unselfishly of what we have and who we are, and by GOD's grace, have courage, patience, and a forgiving heart!
ANNE S. AYERS | FINANCIAL ASSISTANT
After growing up in Princeton, NJ, I made my way south to Hall County which has been my home for 30 years. While raising my two amazing kids, Amanda and Robert, I worked as a preschool director, kindergarten parapro, and as a church Administrative Assistant for 12 years. I love road trips...the further the better! But I also recharge by being at home with my 2 rescue pups, reading, cooking, and spending time with close friends. I am thrilled be be a part of Family Promise Hall County and believe that as a community we can locally address a national crisis by helping homeless families build new lives here in Hall County.
LACRECIA MCCREE | L.I.F.E program Coordinator
My professional background falls under the customer service umbrella. My first job was with Nielson Media Research (the marketing research company that follows trends on what Americans watch, buy and listen to). My career branched out from making cold calls, to customer relations, virtual corporate training, implementation, project management, research and not to mention I was a full-time telecommuter for 6 1/2yrs with Sprint.
One of my long term goals has been to start a non-profit organization that focused on homeless veterans and single parents. Well, now I've been there and LITERALLY have the t-shirt to prove it. I've witnessed first hand the good, bad, and the ugly of homelessness. As I worked through the program I volunteered my time to serve other families by cooking meals for our L.I.F.E courses and helping the former L.I.F.E Coordinator, and now I have been offered the part-time position with Family Promise as the new L.I.F.E Coordinator. This mets my heart, as this is the way that the Lord has made for me to begin the journey specifically addressing the desires of my heart.
Danielle latlippe | Little steps daycare coordinator
I've lived in Gainesville since graduating from Family Promise in 2013. My heart was changed and humbled when my family was brought into the program. I was taken back at the love, kindness, and caring that seemed to beam from everyone. We worked hard and were able to graduate from the program and gain an amazing independence!
My husband Chris and I have three handsome boys, Payton is 11 Parker is 7, and our baby Paxton is 3! We live in a sweet, little home in Lula that we absolutely adore. My husband Chris works in furniture and design with Martin Furniture, where we feel like he has been a perfect fit for the last several years. We couldn't be happier with our careers, home, and family. God has surely blessed us!
I've known for years where my heart needed to be. I found such a great love and happiness when I was brought on to work at Little Steps Daycare. I am finally able to give back to an organization that has so whole-heartedly given to my family. I am blessed to be able to show each and every single one of these children love and to teach them the little things that will help them through transitions with their families.
