Board of Directors
Our team of professionals who work together to ensure Grace Haven has all of the necessary tools to fulfill its mission.
JR and her husband Kevin both have hearts for the lost and broken and have been a foster family for children here in NW Arkansas and Arizona. JR loves the Lord first and is dedicated to loving what He loves as well as she can. Currently, she works with behaviorally challenged children in the school system. In the past, she has worked as a behavior health therapist, specializing in high needs trauma (children and adult) cases and children on the autistic spectrum. She loves helping people find their strength in their identity and watching them learn and grow through their experiences.
JR loves music, believing it heals spirit and soul and has spent most of her life singing; in the shower, on a stage, in churches but her favorite thing is worship, whether it be with a song or her life.
Krista and her husband Derrick have been married 17 years. They have actively served in ministry roles within their home church and in the community through the home school and adoptive communities in NWA. Kirsta has a passion to pour Jesus into each adoptive mom she meets. Krista brings compassion, joy and a love of others into everything she does. She has a contagious joy that is a blessing to all who know her.
