Victoria is responsible for CKC communications and is always looking for funding and new connections in the community. Her favorite CKC activity is to facilitate art parties students. This is done at a variety of venues including the classroom, Girl Scout meetings and general art parties.
Victoria’s children, Grace (middle school), Henry and Allison (both elementary school) are active participants at most Creek Kids Care activities.
Rachelle is involved in many aspects of the running of Creek Kids Care with a focus on art parties, new funding sources and Parkmead Liaison.
Rachelle’s children are active at their respective middle and elementary schools.
Co- Vice President

Vivian’s children are all participants in CKC
Co-Founder and Advisor to the Board
Laura oversees two school satellite groups, and participates in most levels of Creek Kids Care administration and activities. This year, she is organizing a group of Creek Kids Care families to travel to Mother of Peace Community in Mutoko, Zimbabwe. This trip is a dream come true for her and many other Creek Kids, and will be undertaken in honor of CKC co-founder Julie Miles.
Laura’s children, now high schoolers, remain very active in Creek Kids Care.
Catherine Freemire and Julie Miles
Co-Founders. No longer on the board, but forever a part of CKC
In addition to her leadership role at CKC, Julie served as the Program Director of the J.F. Kapnek Charitable Trust, an organization that CKC supported for six years.
We miss Julie every day, and we honor her by continuing the good work and unfailing dedication she demonstrated throughout her incredibly vibrant life. Creek Kids Care honors Julie’s memory every year with our Say Yes Youth Benefit Concert.
Creek Kids Care was shaped in huge part by co-founder Catherine Freemire, mother of two college-age Creek Kids, family therapist, and dynamic human being.
The energy, creativity, and drive Cat brought to Creek Kids Care was an incredible gift. She was in charge of major events, organized our Thanksgiving contributions to Trinity Center every year, and managed many other tasks, big and small.
