JOE WOMAC, PRESIDENT at SPECIALTY FAMILY FOUNDATION

JOE WOMAC of the Specialty Family Foundation asks, “Don’t ask why, ask why not?” and challenge your own assumptions and take chances that could lead to greater impact. Specialty Family Foundation seeks to alleviate the conditions that lead to persistent poverty through Inner-City Catholic Education, Substance Abuse Treatment and Prevention and Poverty and Community Intervention.

Specialty Family Foundation was launched in 2006 by Dr. James B. and Joan C. Peter. The Peters also believed in the importance of effective prevention and treatment of substance abuse, particularly intergenerational substance abuse in the lives of the impoverished. They instilled in the Foundation’s culture a commitment to supporting innovative programs that seek to empower families with the education and skills needed to prevent the children in those families from becoming adults who will become impoverished and struggling with the same addictions.
