Chuck has been in the field of developmental disabilities since 1990. He graduated from the University of Missouri-Rolla, with a degree in Petroleum Engineering in 1983. After graduation, he worked for the United States Geological Survey (USGS) in Rolla, MO for 10 years. In 1990, he started an eight-person group home in Rolla, MO. As the agency began to grow, he started providing Individualized Supported Living (ISL) services in various parts of the state. By 1993, the agency had become large enough that Chuck resigned from the USGS to devote himself full time to the agency. He then founded Restoring Hope in 2008 and has since worked diligently to create a team whose contributions and passion for others has allowed it to become the largest host home agency in Missouri.
Chuck's family consists of his wife, Melissa and two children, Nate and Keely. Nate and Keely serve alongside Chuck and a few others on the board and have blessed him with four grandchildren, Willa, Esme, Jude, and Rainer.
Chuck believes Restoring Hope's success is because of the people on his team who understand healthy relationships and strive to do their part to provide people the opportunities to have an abundant and happy life. He enjoys watching the team take Restoring Hope to greater levels without sacrificing excellent services.
