Rachel Gammon // Northside Neighborhood House
Rachel Gammon fell in love with the Northside Neighborhood House years ago as a college sophomore at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. It was then that she worked with children served through the after-school and summer programs. The focus on family and the NNH's mission of providing a hand up to children and their families was inspiring to her. For the past ten years, Rachel has served as Executive Director/CEO at the NNH. Thanks to a great team, the NNH has increased capacity, as well as increased and added programs through a recession.
Working together to serve families at the NNH is a family endeavor. Rachel's husband, Seth, can often be found helping out and their daughters, Kaitlin, Emma Grace and Laura Beth, have been known to ask people for money to "help keep people's lights on". Rachel and her family attend Red Bank Cumberland Presbyterian Church; another part of her family that gives great support to the NNH!
