Staff

While the FA community spans the globe, our team at FARF headquarters is based in beautiful Eugene, Oregon. We are a small, hard-working, and fun-loving team that is passionate about our mission and about the people we serve. We tackle challenges and celebrate milestones. Our office runs on encouragement, humor, teamwork, and a shared commitment.
