(Atlanta, Georgia) – Lost-n-Found Youth is pleased to welcome Audrey Krumbach to the position of Interim Executive Director. Prior to this position Krumbach was Director of Development at Living Room, Inc., whose mission is to ensure housing stability for people living with HIV/AIDS. Her recent accomplishments include implementing significant revenue growth and board development.
Krumbach is a graduate of both Huntingdon College and Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary. After completing a Master of Divinity, Krumbach directed a national campaign to equip leaders to advocate for inclusion of all sexual orientations and gender identities in the United Methodist Church.
She comes with a great passion for protecting the vulnerable and creating safe spaces. Her dual focus on organizational strategy and individual development will help Lost-n-Found as it continues to grow into a regional model at addressing the issues associated with the LGBTQ+ homeless population.
“No one should face homelessness alone,” Krumbach said, “least of all, our forgotten LGBTQ+ youth. Together with the incredibly powerful support of each volunteer, donor, supporter, city official, and agency with whom we can partner, Lost-n-Found is positioned to offer the hope and support that any young person needs to claim their identity and find a place to call home.”
In gratitude for the founders, Krumbach continued, “I am beyond excited to be part of the powerful work started by three visionaries and carried on faithfully by Rick Westbrook for more than six years. Lost-n-Found exists because of his adherence to the dream of making all homeless youth achieve their happy ever after.”
