Frank graduated from Penn State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance.  He also received his Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) from Penn State.

In this role, Frank is responsible for the overall management of the Opportunity House homeless shelter that serves over 500 men, women, and children each year. “I believe I can make a positive impact on the least, the lost and the last in Berks County and beyond,” noted Frank.

He is also responsible for managing the food pantry at Opportunity House and scheduling the volunteers who prepare and serve meals for shelter clients.

“Frank’s experience in both finance and the not-for-profit world uniquely qualifies him as the shelter manager” noted Modesto Fiume, president, Opportunity House. “We look forward to having Frank at Opportunity House and helping us enhance our services to the most vulnerable in our community,” he added.

Frank lives in Exeter Township with his wife, Anne-Marie and their three youngest children.

The Second Street Learning Center is a Keystone 4 Star Early Learning Center providing quality daycare for over 200 children each year.  Programs include infant and toddler programs, Pre-K counts, and programs for school age children.  By providing affordable day care, parents can work and eliminate the cycle of poverty in their families.

Opportunity House Reuse and Recycle Program provides warehouse jobs in addition to the OppShop which is a retail thrift business helping to reduce and eliminate waste in landfills and promote a cleaner environment.  All proceeds from OppShop benefit Opportunity House Shelter programs.
