SMO has new Executive Director
Single Mothers Outreach is proud to announce that we have a new team in place to lead us into an exciting new era. We are thrilled to welcome Yorleni Sapp as our new Executive Director and we also have made some changes to our operations team.
Yorleni Sapp is passionate about work with meaning. She brings to the job a passion for serving individuals believing all people have the right to live with dignity. Yorleni grew up in a developing country (Costa Rica), which shaped her personal values and beliefs. Her life experiences, along with living in different countries, created a strong desire within her to be part of something bigger than herself. She is fascinated about diversity and being sensitive to all cultures. Growing up in a home with both parents deeply involved in nonprofit work, she understands firsthand the impact and the rewarding experience of giving back, and affecting change. She has chosen to respond by being in a field where she can play an active part in developing solutions on behalf of social issues.
Yorleni is a graduate from UACA-Universidad Autónoma de Centro America, where she received a License in Law. She also attended Georgetown University and Costa Rica University, where she received a BA in Political Science. She is married to her loving husband, Matt. In their spare time they enjoy walks with Bella their beautiful golden retriever.
