Our Staff

The Allegany Franciscan Ministries’ staff team includes nine individuals who lead and manage the ongoing work of our ministry. Our three regional vice presidents are “in the field” daily, working with partners and along with our program officer to improve the health of the communities we serve.

The rest of the team works from our “central” office in Palm Harbor Florida, providing administrative and strategic support and working with our board of directors as well as colleagues at Trinity Health.
