Katrina Bostick, MSW

Executive Director

A Savannah native, Katrina Bostick has poured her heart into improving her hometown. She was employed at a childcare center for 13 years, where she worked frequently with nearly impoverished families. While studying for her Bachelors of Social Work degree from Savannah State in 2013, she began working at Family Promise, then known as the Interfaith Hospitality Network. This experience changed her understanding of homelessness to something that put children and families on the forefront. She was appointed executive director of Family Promise in 2015, shortly after graduating with her Masters of Social Work degree from Valdosta State University. In 2020, she became the director of the newly formed Family Promise of the Coastal Empire – the result of a merger between Savannah, Effingham and Bryan County affiliates. At Family Promise, Bostick puts her passion for homeless children and families to work, giving them resources to build independent lives. She has three children, Alexis, Donovan and Lauren, and lives in Pooler with her dog, Charlie.
