CJ Martin, JD
TFR Board Chair
Douglas Hyde, MBA
TFR Board Treasurer
In addition to Doug’s formidable professional experience in the business and management sector, he says his primary calling is to be attentive to the needs and invested in the lives of his family, neighbors, church and community. He feels the community as a whole has much at stake as we share in the challenges, opportunities and successes of our children — they need and deserve our best. He has served as a founding board member and past president of a non-profit organization committed to improving the lives of youth — the Search Institute — and has also been a board member of a Boys and Girls Club. Currently, Doug volunteers his time teaching piano and guitar lessons to several adolescent youth and also teaches children’s Sunday school at his church. He is passionate about the Family Room because healthy families are a critical foundation for healthy youth. The vision of The Family Room toward the restoration of healthy relationships between parents and their children is inspiring to him. Doug has been a member of TFR’s Board of Directors since January 2018.

TFR Board Member
Senior Loan Officer, Guild Mortgage
Sara founded and built her own business — Guild Mortgage — as a young single mom to her amazing now teenaged daughter. She remembers many difficult and lonely times struggling to provide for her family and feels incredibly fortunate to have built a successful business and a comfortable life for her and her daughter. Sara was introduced to The Family Room through a totally “random” event that now feels truly providential to both her and TFR’s staff. She felt an immediate curiosity about TFR’s work and began volunteering right away. She feels that helping parents and their children reunite is close to her heart and is the right fit for her in giving back to her community. Sara began volunteering for TFR in June of 2017 and joined TFR’s Board of Directors five months later in November.
The Hope Squared Foundation
With a long history in banking and the financial world and a lifetime of service in nonprofits and community organizations, Willow has developed a passion for helping the underserved. She cares deeply about the communities we live and work in and has a strong sense of social responsibility. She is also passionate about financial literacy as this is often a root cause preventing individuals from rising out of poverty.
Willow is the Executive Director for The Hope Squared Foundation, a Portland-based nonprofit that serves teens and women facing a crisis pregnancy.
As a young teenage mother, Willow was fully aware of the difficult circumstances many families face. Having endured much, she has made it her life’s mission to serve underprivileged families. Willow is a native Oregonian, having grown up on the beautiful Oregon Coast. As a wife, mother, and grandmother, her family is her greatest treasure.
The needs are overwhelming. COVID-19 has amplified stress and anxiety for our families. With the surge of needs and limited government help for birth parents, your gift is more important than ever.
The birth parents we serve already have overcome so many barriers and struggles prior to coming to The Family Room. These parents now face unemployment, limited access to sobriety support and therapy groups, and numerous barriers that could interrupt their progress. Without your help, their healing and growth are at risk.
