Care Net Selects New President: Roland Warren, Fighter of 'Fatherhood Crisis'
Warren joins national pro-life organization after 10 years as president of National Fatherhood Initiative.
Roland Warren will join Care Net as president and CEO, the national pro-life organization has announced.
Warren formerly spent more than 10 years as president of the National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI) and served on the Fatherhood Task Force of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. His work attempted to address the growing "fatherhood crisis" in the United States.
Former Care Net president Melinda Delahoyde stepped down from her role after five years of leadership.
“Roland Warren brings to Care Net a wealth of experience in the nonprofit and business world,” said Care Net board chairman Jeffrey Wright. “His energy, vision and experience will position Care Net to be a leader in building relationships to serve women and save lives.”
Warren graduated from Princeton University, has an M.B.A. from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and worked in the business sector for more than 20 years. He now serves on the boards for World Vision and Christian Union.
According to NFI, Warren will continue to work with the organization and serve on its board.
