Anthony Frazier would say he has been connected to FACE before it was called FACE when he met Loren Dubberke while he was in middle school and living in the Robinson neighborhood. He was introduced to North Fresno Church and the various programs offered by the church and he has stayed in contact ever since. Anthony is married to his high school sweetheart, and is an armored truck driver for Loomis. He enjoys playing basketball at NFC during open gym nights, working on DIY projects at home with his wife, and playing with their cute terrier/dachshund mix dog. When Anthony was invited to join the board, he was excited to be part of an awesome team, serving the church community and being able to see all of the future programs that will be offered through FACE and the people it will be helping and supporting.
Richard Kopper was excited to join the FACE Board as an answer to prayer about how he could be involved in serving people. As a former classroom teacher for 38 years as well as some administrative roles, he brings experiences about family support which is helpful to the FACE Board. Richard and his wife, who are part of North Fresno Church, have 2 sons and 5 grandchildren. He became more directly acquainted with FACE and its services when he called Jorg to have Rock Pile come and help clean up their backyard around the fence line and trees. He was impressed with the service from a firsthand perspective. He encourages folks to hire FACE to provide services for themselves and to tell other people about the work of FACE. Richard appreciates that FACE offers varied and diverse options for resourcing people.
