Rebecca is President and co-founder of Orphan Relief and Rescue. She and her husband Tim have invested more than seventeen years in humanitarian work in both Central America and West Africa. She lived in Benin and Liberia, West Africa with her husband and three children for 2 years. It was during this time that the plight of orphans and abandoned children in Africa became extremely evident. Many desperate children Rebecca encountered would be dead today without intervention. Through their actions, Orphan Relief and Rescue has rescued hundreds of children from being sold into slavery, and helped over 150 parents start businesses through their micro-finance program in Benin. She is passionate about educating and empowering people to end abuse and to stand up for the defenseless.
Rebecca is also a speaker and writer. A published author, she writes articles for newspapers and authored Inspired to Action, How following the promptings of your heart can change the world, which maintains a 5 star rating on Amazon.

In addition to his undergraduate work in Applied Behavioral Sciences and M.A. in Human Development with an Emphasis in Social Change, Nick holds a standing passion for creating partnerships and connecting resources for those that advocate for children’s rights and community-based action. With over 17 years of experience working with local and international organizations that serve children, he formally joined ORR in December of 2019 to help support its mission in overcoming injustices facing the children, families, and communities of West Africa. When not working, he can be found running local trails and exploring new adventures with his family across the Pacific Northwest. His son would add, “He’s REALLY funny, too.”
