Rozina Kifle, born and raised in Ethiopia, a country in Eastern Africa. As a child, Rozina observed her mother taking care of her parents and her other elder relatives. Eventually, her mother trained her sister and Rozina to work along side her ensuring the best care and quality time was poured into her grandparents and other elderly relatives in their remaining years. From a young age, Rozina always love to spend time with her grandparents, aunts and uncles. Growing up in a family that is oriented in nurturing and focusing on high standards for elderly care forever gave Rozina a joy and passion for this generation that she cannot describe.
Once Rozina moved to America, she worked her way through college at Jenson and Jenson while studying for her degree at San Jose State University. Later, she became a Product Quality Engineer with Abbott Laboratories working on Diabetics devices for over 11 years. Even though, Rozina loved what she was doing in her profession, through much prayer and God’s timing, realized that her deepest calling was nurturing seniors in their latter years. The passion Rozina has for the elderly community has always been close to her heart, driving her to visit regularly in Assisted Senior Homes, Nursing Homes and Hospital visits. After each visit, she is more compelled to seek even more time to get involved with this special generation.
“The joy always shakes my heart after each visit. I find myself ecstatic and joyful when I am with older people especially the ones who need assistance.” –Rozina Kifle
Rozina is gratefully for all the love and support from her husband and 3 children as she continues to pursue her calling and passion to serve our older generation, focusing to ensure they have a loving and joyful environment as they live out their remaining years in peace surrounded by a team of people who love and respect their elders.

For over 20 years Stacy has worked together with her husband in youth ministry, with the key focus of developing young leaders to live on purpose in the calling God has designed for their life.

For over 6 years now, Stacy has been serving the Lord as a children’s pastor and finds great joy empowering these young world changers.
Developing leaders to serve the Lord at a young age is a core foundation to a positive future. With this, Stacy designed a program called, Junior Leaders, where preteens and teens would enter into a discipleship program to serve within the church, learn about leadership skills and develop their own outreaches. A regular outreach that she has taken some of her Junior Leaders on has been visiting nursing homes with Animal Assisted Activities. With Stacy’s own grandmother who lived in a private assisted living home for her remaining years, she knows first hand the importance and concern families have for their loved one’s personalized care. Placing the highest level of thoughtfulness to ensuring their loved one is with a team of people who find joy in what they do, Stacy is excited to be apart of a Dream Team such as this.
