Prior to NFCC, York was the director of development for The Drake House, a Roswell-based nonprofit serving homeless mothers and children. 

She has spent the last 20 years working for the needs of the North Fulton community through several different organizations. 

“The board and staff have had the chance to work with Holly over the last year, and her successes as development director and her passion for the mission of NFCC speak for themselves,” said Mary Good, president of the Board of Directors. “While we will never be able to replace Barbara Duffy and the legacy she leaves for all of North Fulton, we feel that Holly will be an excellent leader for the future of NFCC.” 

York will begin her new position on December 1 and work with Duffy until her retirement at the end of 2019.
