LLF Executive Team

Dave Williams: President

Dave Williams’ unique background has placed in him a passion to work with at-risk and homeless youth. He has actually experienced what many of these youth are currently in the middle of, whether it be time living on the streets, abusive and/or difficult adoption and foster experiences, or other struggles that no child should have to face. At the age of 19, Dave accepted Christ as the only way to permanently heal his wounds, and has found his mission in ministering and aiding other struggling youth in whatever ways he can.With the support of his wife, Cynthia, and his children, Grace and Jack, Dave is able to partner with various ministries that help him accomplish that goal. Along with serving as an Executive Director at Hosea Youth Services since 2012, Dave serves as the Youth Pastor at University Fellowship Church and as an Advisor for Agape Youth, which ministers to children and youth with incarcerated parents. In the summer of 2012, he started a business called Youthweb with Ken Harvey, with the purpose of giving the youth at Hosea an opportunity for employment in a cleaning partnership with Bell Real Estate.Dave firmly believes in the power of positive relationships, and is constantly working on opportunities to provide those relationships in the lives of at-risk youth.

Devon Allen: Vice President, Finance

Devon graduated with a B.S. in Mathematics from University of California Riverside in 2010. Since that time she has worked in a variety of fashions to support a number of non-profits and small businesses in Lane County. Her work with them includes bookkeeping, grant writing, payroll, marketing, cash flow planning, administrative support and other areas that these businesses might struggle to hire a full-time staff member for. Though she now works remotely from Yucaipa, California where her husband, Jeff, serves as an Associate Pastor, her heart to serve the needs of the at-risk and underserved populations of Lane County has remained. She is excited at the opportunity that the Lane Leadership Foundation offers to bring the organizations and resources of Lane County together to meet the needs of its people.
