MEET OUR TEAM

Since 1985, we have carried out our mission through teams of volunteers locally and around the world.
Here we are highlighting a few of those team members.

FEATURED TEAM LEADERS

In addition to the center directors, IHF is managed by over 50 teams. Each team is supervised by a lead who directs the team members. The team members consist of At Home, At Center, and local volunteers. You can join any of our IHF teams too! A list of our Teams is under VOLUNTEERING.

Each Week here in WHO IS WHO we will show the photos of a few of our Team Leads so you get to know the faces of the people who make up IHF.

MEDAN, SUMATRA CENTER 

Medan is a very special place. The Director Lissa started her journey here as a GLD a few years ago. She became a dentist but but cares so much about IHF she returned as director and spreads her laughter and joy with all. Budi and Siti also started as GLDs and are now Co-directors. We call them our Angels as there seems to be nothing they can’t improve. Siti began as a student of IHF, then Teacher, GLD, and now Co-director. They are our jewels.

BALI CENTER

Bali center’s Director, Assep, is the younger brother of the center’s inspiring former, Director Ahah. The center is helped by brilliant GLDs who are well on their ways to becoming directors themselves. Assep is helped at times by Kadek, who was the Housemother for IHF CEO’s daughter, Crystal from age six to her teens. Now Crystal is thirty, which shows how dedicated Kadek is to sharing her time, love and laughter in the Bali home. The housekeeper Agus helps to maintain the center grounds and needs. If you are coming to the Bali center, our dear Agus is sure to pick you up from the airport with a warm greeting and big grin.
