Martha’s Village & Kitchen has a long history of providing a range of services to those in need, including emergency food and shelter, medical care, and educational and vocational programs. Now with a full year of leadership under his belt, CEO Sam Hollenbeck is looking to expand those offerings and empower more individuals to achieve long-term stability and self-sufficiency.

“I look forward to continuing Martha’s mission of delivering high-quality services and support to those who need it most,” said Hollenbeck, reflecting on his first year on the job. “That includes increasing housing capacity, implementing new job training, and providing placement programs to help individuals secure employment and build successful careers.”

Hollenbeck previously served as Financial Director (2017-2018) and Vice President (2020-2022), for Martha’s Village & Kitchen, where his responsibilities included tracking and reviewing compliance of government grants, among other duties. He remains focused on growing Martha’s reach and impact — particularly in the areas of housing and job training.

“We’re deeply committed to helping individuals and families overcome difficult circumstances, and our programs improve the lives of countless people in the Coachella Valley and beyond,” said Hollenbeck. “Every day, we’re making a difference.”

Martha’s Village & Kitchen recently announced updates to its Board of Directors, ensuring leadership continuity as the organization provides critical services to those most in need in our community. The Board is now comprised of:

  • Jonathan Espy (Chairman)
  • Henry Burdick (Chairman Emeritus)
