  Roger Capron - Treasurer   My name is Roger. From February 2000 through October 2007, I worked at Tierra Nueva’s Family Support Center as a pastoral advocate. Currently, I case manage and advocate for youth and families around school attendance and truancy issues.  Tierra Nueva is a respecter of peoples, especially those who live on the margins of our society. Being involved on TN’s Board and in the Faith Community, I get to witness how simple acts of kindness, respect, and Jesus-like love move folks who are more used to being ignored, mistreated, and rejected towards transformation. This, as well as the palpable sense of family within the community, is what attracts me to TN!

  David Evans - Co-Chair   David Evans is the CEO of  Fidalgo Coffee Roasters  where he is actively working to glorify God in the workplace. David is also involved in purchasing and roasting all of the coffee from the farm in Honduras, which is how he originally connected to Tierra Nueva. That connection grew into a passion for seeing people on the margins grow in their faith in the Lord, Jesus Christ.
