Local Outreach Director
Melissa Peter joined our staff as Local Outreach Director in 2021. She founded the Houston Blessings in a Backpack chapter, providing weekend food for food insecure children, and has led the organization since inception in 2012. Prior to Blessings, she worked with SBISD schools with the Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities to create and execute Individual Education Plans across treatment disciplines with a foundation in speech pathology, augmentative communication, and early childhood intervention. Through her work, she has developed relationships with many of our local outreach partners, and we are honored that she has been felt a call to join our team for the exciting season of ministry ahead.
