“Along with 20 years of institutional history, Jeanne brings a strong commitment to TCCAP’s mission, a solid understanding of the communities we serve, and a clear vision for the future of TCCAP,” says Sandy Alonzo, chair of the board of directors.
“The Board has been impressed with Jeanne’s work as COO and looks forward to working with her in this new role. We believe she is the right leader to continue the momentum and progress the Agency has made and to lead the Agency toward new opportunities for growth and sustainability.”

Our role in the community includes being good stewards of public and private funds and reflecting that in the delivery of our programs. We have a dedicated staff, Board, and the support of community stakeholders”, she continues. “I’m looking forward to serving TCCAP in the role of CEO and leading the agency in this next chapter of our growth.”
