Tammy Iskarous – founder, Executive Director for Riverbend Family Ministries. Tammy says, she was created to serve because she saw a need to provide space for families that are hurting to get the help they need in a holistic, safe environment. Her mission is sharing God’s unconditional love with people by living my life with compassion, integrity, and dedication.
Riverbend Family Ministries provides resources and training for smaller non-profit organizations in the Madison County area. They work together under one roof, providing families and individuals the tools they need to be self-sufficient. Their collaborative method focuses on holistic efforts for children, youth and families who’ve experienced trauma, most often due to violence, addiction poverty and homelessness.
Madison County officials recently honored Riverbend Family Ministries (RFM) with the Model Leadership Through Service Award in the Organization category. The award was received during the M.I.C. (Model Innovative County) Summit in April 2017. Tammy received her BA in Christian Studies from Lincoln Christian University.
