HOUSTON—Northwest Assistance Ministries (NAM) President and CEO, Carole Little, recently announced her plans to retire to NAM staff and the Board of Trustees.

Little has served as NAM’s President and CEO since 2001. Under her direction and guidance NAM has experienced tremendous growth and gained a reputation as a premiere health and human services provider. Throughout Little’s tenure, NAM has served millions of clients and become a prominent social service organization in the northwest Houston community supported by more than 2,000 volunteers and more than 40 Interfaith congregations.

A celebration of Little’s time at NAM will take place at the annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon on April 12 at Shirley Acres.

NAM’s Board of Trustees has initiated the process of finding a new CEO, and a committee has been selected to oversee the hiring of an executive search firm in order to recruit the most promising candidates to take on the task of leading NAM into the future.

Jim Fryfogle, Vice Chair of NAM’s Board of Trustees, has been appointed as interim CEO while the search is being conducted. Fryfogle served as a Vice President for Plains All-American for many years and the Board is confident he will provide the executive experience, sound judgement and leadership needed during this transition.

Northwest Assistance Ministries is a non-profit, community-based social service agency that strives to meet basic human needs through Neighbors Helping Neighbors. NAM provides assistance in areas such as food, shelter, health, education and domestic violence awareness and intervention. During its last fiscal year, NAM touched the lives of more than 129,000 people through its many programs and services.
