Montgomery County nonprofit Community Assistance Center named Jennifer Huffine as its new president and CEO on April 14, according to its board of directors.
Huffine previously worked with the CAC as its director of operations and programs before moving to another area nonprofit, Interfaith of The Woodlands, to serve as its co-director of programs and services.
“CAC is an incredible organization, and I am grateful to take this step forward with a compassionate and thoughtful board along with an amazing team of staff,” Huffine said in the announcement.
Since 1981, CAC has provided basic needs services to Montgomery County residents, including a food pantry, disaster relief funds and clothing vouchers. The organization also provides housing relief and was named one of four nonprofits partnering with Montgomery County to disburse pandemic rental assistance.
The board announcement also highlighted CAC’s new satellite offices, created in partnership with Montgomery County’s Precinct 1 Commissioner Robert Walker and Precinct 4 Commissioner James Metts. CAC Board Chair Woody McOmber praised Huffine’s return to the organization.
“I am pleased to have Jennifer return, not only because of her depth of knowledge regarding CAC, but also her caliber and background as a leader. CAC is in good hands for the next phase of helping our neighbors in need,” McOmber said in the announcement.
