Sara Wallace is a Southern California native. She and her two young daughters relocated to Longview in the summer of 2019.  Sara joined Family Promise permenantly after helping Family Promise through the Cowlitz AmeriCorps Network, a national service program aimed toward providing support to local nonprofit organizations to help improve lives and meet the needs of others.  Sara has worked with various non-profit organizations in Cowlitz County, giving time and effort to strengthen the community and give back to the place she now calls home. Sara brought a great variety of professional experience to her work as Case Manager.  Sara served as our Case Manager for several years and she has a wealth of knowledge and understanding about those experiencing homelessness.  Sara continues her work as Case Manager for the next several months as we realign our program, and we are excited for the ideas she brings and her caring spirit for the children and families we serve.
