In 2017, the Family Christian Association of America (FCAA) Corporate Board of Directors named Terry Joseph, Jr. as the agency’s third President/CEO, succeeding the outgoing President, Mr. Richard Chisholm, who retired.
The Miami Native is a graduate of Miami Edison Senior High School, Bethune-Cookman University and Bienville University. Also, Mr. Joseph is formerly the Director of Operations & Program Manager of The James E. Scott Community Association, Inc. (JESCA) F.L.O.Y.D. House Juvenile Services Program.
Mr. Joseph joined FCAA as a Senior Program Director in July 2007 and was promoted to the Chief Program Officer (Branch Executive Director) in 2008. As the Chief Program Officer, he was responsible for administrative operations and overseeing the Family Services, Youth Development, Health & Wellness and Facility Departments.
Says Mr. Joseph: “I thank God for giving me this new opportunity to continue being a servant leader here in the community in which I was born, raised and now reside. Thanks to my family, church and friends for your appreciated support. I love working for local community-based organizations, such as FCAA, that give me the opportunities to positively support young black boys and girls and their families growing up in Miami-Dade County! I am greatly appreciative and eager to bring more services to this community. This is just the beginning.”
And in the words of Thoreau: “To do nothing for others, is the undoing of one’s self.”
