Linda Smith

Executive Director

Linda Smith is a lifetime resident of Butler County and calls Hamilton home. Linda has extensive experience working within the homeless system, with shelters, transitional housing, permanent supportive housing vouchers, and homeless veterans.

Linda feels that she has been blessed to be able to make her passion into her day-to-day work. "There are so many children who lack adequate and secure housing and Family Promise is dedicated to addressing that issue. With the assistance of staff and volunteers, we are truly making a difference in the lives of the children and their parents."

Linda resides in Hamilton with her husband Glenn and their 3 dogs, Ella, Finn, and Josie.
