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.”
Born and raised in Seattle, Jenine Grey is of Tlingit (Alaska Native) and African American descent. As a youth, Jenine spent every summer in her mother’s village of Kake in southeast Alaska. In contrast, she also spent three years living in Montego Bay, Jamaica with her husband and two young children, who are now young adults.
The last fourteen years of her professional life has been dedicated to combating the social and economic disparities of all people of color. Prior to coming to Orphan Relief and Rescue, Jenine was the Executive Director of the Chief Seattle Club, a nonprofit in downtown Seattle serving homeless and low-income American Indians and Alaska Natives living in urban areas.
She is a 2008 graduate of First Nations Development Institute’s Seattle LEAD Program, served six years as the Board Secretary for the Minority Executive Director’s Coalition, was one of the inaugural members of the Interagency Council for the 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness in King County, and sat on the Seattle Police Department’s Native American Advisory Council.
As the Office Manager, Jenine occupies several roles: office administrator, bookkeeper, and fundraising and strategic planning consultant. She is honored to be a part of Orphan Relief and Rescue and looks forward to contributing to the exceptional work being done to safeguard children’s rights in the rural and village communities of Liberia and Benin, West Africa.

Raised in a small farming and lumber community in Oregon, Sheryl has been a city-dweller for the past 34 years. First living in Los Angeles and now Seattle (Kent) with her husband of 36 years, where they raised their three, now grown children, has provided many opportunities to put her servant’s heart to work. Having worked as an Executive Assistant for most of her adult life, she feels most valuable when contributing to an organization that makes a difference in the lives of those who find themselves at risk.
For twelve years, Sheryl provided administrative support to the Executive Director and as a Development Coordinator for non-profit organizations whose focus was to free men and women from addiction and homelessness. “It’s my belief that my role to serve those who have vision and passion, helping them do what they’ve been called to do, regardless if they are the President, Executive Director, volunteer or financial donor.” At Orphan Relief and Rescue, she is looking forward to building relationships with the people that make the work that they do, possible.
To protect the identity of our African Staff, we are not able to list their names. We have a total of 6 African staff members in Liberia and Benin combined.
