Meet our Board of Directors

The work Redeem-Her does would not be possible without the people who dedicate their valuable time and skills to the organization. The Board of Trustees consists of not less than five or more than eleven members that represent diversity in terms of personal and professional backgrounds and experiences.  Members are approved for terms of up to three years.  Regular meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every other month.  

The Board of Trustees are committed to serve and represent the organization with the highest standards of ethical and professional behavior, and to treat with respect and consideration all persons, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, maternity, marital or family status, disability age, or national origin.

Anyone interested in joining the Board of Trustees should contact us at 732-245-9055 or send an email to
