My name is Fred Thiel. I have been working with Reverend Randolph Johnson and Mrs. Yolanda Johnson at Lift Up Your Head, Inc. since November 30, 2010.

The experiences that have led to the enlargement of their spirit also inspire a high degree of empathy which has been shown by the long lasting relationships that they have been able to establish and maintain with staff and service partners. I hope to work for Reverend and Mrs. Johnson as long as they will have me.
