It's a hand up, not a handout.

Kyle Taylor joined Irving Cares as a volunteer in the Employment Services Program in July 2010.  He led the weekly Job Search Seminars advising and inspiring clients who were seeking employment.  In April 2012, Kyle was named “Volunteer of the Year.”

Soon after, Kyle joined the staff, and he has managed the food pantry which serves thousands, and supervised hundreds of volunteers.

His position grew into the Director of Community Engagement.  At Teddie Story’s retirement at the end of December he will assume the position of CEO.

“The staff, volunteers, donors, and customers of Irving Cares will be well represented by Kyle Taylor as the next Chief Executive Officer. His passion for service to others is evident in his dedication to Irving Cares and its customers,” said Teddie Story, retiring CEO of Irving Cares.

Anthony Bridges, Board Chair stated, “On behalf of the Board of Directors of Irving Cares, we feel that Kyle Taylor was the best candidate to replace Teddie Story as CEO of Irving Cares.  We believe that Kyle will continue the legacy of Irving Cares providing services to Irving residents with dignity and respect.”
