Vice-President:  Glenda Bredeson A native of Arvada, Glenda has been an active volunteer for 50+ years in many organizations related to children and their families.

General Director: Bonnie Yockstick – A resident of Arvada, Bonnie is an Associate in Ministry for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

General Director: Lori Kratzer  – Lori has worked in the field of human resources and vocational rehabilitation over the past 25 years. She loves working with people and helping solve problems. Her mother, Shirley, was a member of Warm Hearts ~ Warm Babies for several years before Lori attended her first meeting. After that meeting in 2010, she said, “I’m hooked”.  Shortly after her moms’ passing in 2011, Lori joined the Board of Directors. The first major project she worked was a fundraiser–the WHWB cookbooks. It was so much fun to see all the recipes and the history behind many of them. Of course, we love it when the volunteers bring them to the potluck for us to “taste test” them. Every recipe in the cookbook is awesome. One area of focus for me is the Demise Group—we make burial buntings and full-term burial outfits for boys and girls. We provide these items to hospitals, pregnancy centers, etc.

General Director: Karen Nelson- .
