Happy New Year!

Dear Flat Rock Family,

Thank you for an amazing 2016 and for the wonderful start to 2017!

2016 was a year of transformation at Flat Rock. Reverend Nancy S. Hull retired as President & CEO of Flat Rock Homes, Care Center & Community Services after 18 years of remarkable leadership as she faithfully guided our ministry through many changes such as opening Flat Rock Educational Center, building the Flat Rock Care Center Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) and beginning the Flat Rock Adult Advantages program.

In June, Karen L. Kilgo joined the Flat Rock team by taking up the mantle of leadership as the President & CEO of Flat Rock Homes, Care Center & Community Services. Kilgo moved to Ohio bringing with her 23 years of executive 2016 Legacy Award present to Tiffin Faith UMCmanagement experience having working in several mission-driven non-profit agencies in Atlanta, GA including Atlanta Mission and Christian City.

We also celebrated Henry’s* graduation from Flat Rock Education Center.After a well deserved break, Henry* successfully transition to our Flat Rock Adult Advantages program where he enjoys participating in a number of programs growing his vocational and social skills.

In October, we celebrated 150 years of mission and ministry with an evening of recognition, legacy and hope.
