The Board of Directors of a nonprofit can make all the difference in an organization’s effectiveness to accomplish its mission. Orange County Rescue Mission benefits from gifted and dedicated and skilled men and women who lead with passion and integrity as our volunteer Board of Directors.

One such leader and Board Member is Christopher Ferebee, Esq. As an attorney and literary agent, Chris represents “thought-provoking, life-changing and uplifting books from a variety of thought-leaders and world-changers. These are projects that seek to … simply inspire you to be a better version of yourself.” (The Christopher Ferebee Agency)

Chris lives out this passion for helping all people to become a better version of themselves, including those experiencing homelessness. He has applied his legal expertise and volunteer leadership to empower the creation and development of several Rescue Mission campuses, programs, services, and affiliate organizations, including Village of Hope, Tustin Veterans Outpost, Hurtt Family Health Clinics, Double R Ranch, and the acquisition of Laurel House dba Hope Harbor.

I recently nominated Chris for the Orange County Business Journal’s General Counsel Award. He wasn’t chosen, but I believe his years of excellent service in his field and nonprofit leadership deserve recognition. Chris has shown exemplary leadership, service, and vision that has provided a hand up, and not just a handout, to thousands of hurting people.

Thank you, Christopher Ferebee, for your servant leadership to end homelessness one life at a time. It is a privilege to serve alongside you.
