Faith Whitmore, Sacramento Regional Family Justice Center CEO, Announces Retirement


Faith Whitmore, Chief Executive Officer of the Sacramento Regional Family Justice Center (SRFJC) since 2016, announced she will retire effective August 31, 2024.

After serving as a local United Methodist pastor for 30 years and District Director for Congressman Ami Bera for nearly four years, Whitmore was hired by the SRFJC in May 2016 as one of three inaugural staff members with no office space.

Since then, Whitmore has led the impressive growth and development of the SRFJC into one of the region’s most respected and effective organizations that serves – without charge – victims of domestic violence, human trafficking, elder abuse, and sexual assault.

“Faith was the perfect person to lead the Sacramento Regional Family Justice Center,” said Robin Carter, SRFJC Board Chair. “She took the dream of creating a one-stop center in Sacramento County for victims of violence and abuse and turned it into a shining reality. Her love and leadership will have a lasting impact on literally thousands of lives.”

As of today, the SRFJC has provided hands-on assistance to more than 27,000 victims and gently supported 13,000 children deeply impacted by violence and abuse. A dedicated staff of 24 now operates from office space that measures 12,000 square-feet.

“It has been the privilege of my life to lead the SRFJC the past eight years,” Whitmore said. “I am profoundly honored to serve alongside our staff. The extraordinary compassion, love, and devotion shown to each and every person who walks through our doors humbles me every day. They are the heart and soul of the SRFJC. I can’t thank them enough.”

The SRFJC Board of Directors will now undertake an extensive search for its next CEO.
