EIS announces Bill Andoe as new Executive Director

Emergency Infant Services announces Bill Andoe as Executive Director The Tulsa-based nonprofit — whose mission is to meet the basic needs of infants and children through age five whose families are in crisis — welcomes the nonprofit veteran who has served at several Tulsa-area nonprofit organizations.

Emergency Infant Services is pleased to announce Bill Andoe as the new Executive Director. With years of nonprofit management experience, Andoe will work to help the organization achieve many new goals, including moving to its new location in 2019.

“Bill is passionate about helping children in need in our community,” Alissa Hurley said, EIS board president. “We believe our wonderful EIS staff, volunteers and donors will appreciate his collaborative leadership style and vision to continue the great legacy of EIS of serving the littlest in need in the Tulsa area for more than 40 years.”

Andoe’s management style and heart line up with EIS’s vision to help every family in the Tulsa community facing financial challenges to receive immediate help because a hungry child can’t wait. “It is an honor to serve my community by leading an outstanding group of staff and volunteers who make a positive impact through the provision of critical services for infants and children in the Tulsa area,” Andoe said. “The mission of Emergency Infant Services is desperately needed throughout the Tulsa area, and I am both humbled and excited to start this journey as the new executive director.”

Andoe will help shepherd EIS through its major transition of moving to its new location in 2019, which will allow the nonprofit to expand its services and better achieve its core values, which are:

* Give care and respect to all;

* Connect families to resources they need, even if EIS does not offer them;

* Value all donors, volunteers and staff;

* Create hope out of crisis by freely giving love in a non-judgmental way.

“This is an exciting time for EIS as we prepare to move to our new location in 2019,” Hurley said. “Bill’s experience and leadership will be instrumental in realizing our goal to better serve even more infants and children and connect them with resources in our community.”
