Jackie Yancy, Executive Director

Jackie has spent the majority of her career working with women who face domestic violence, homelessness, and single-parenting. For over twenty years, Jackie has empowered people, particularly women, from low socioeconomic communities to build self-worth by cultivating and supporting programs that focus on education, financial management, employment, and personal development.

Under Jackie’s leadership, New Creation Home has developed an innovative and evidence-based case management system for residents. The case management model includes the ACE risk assessment (a case plan that addresses the effects of a person’s trauma exposure) and a curriculum designed to teach "self-sufficiency" to young mothers from low socioeconomic communities. Jackie holds a B.S. in Organizational Management, M.S. in Counseling (with emphasis in Marriage, Child, and Family Therapy), and a PhD in Higher Education Administration.

Before joining New Creation Home Ministries, Jackie worked tirelessly as the Senior Case Manager at Oakland Elizabeth House to bring positive change to the lives of the women. Jackie’s husband, Pastor Will Yancy, is a well-known Domestic Violence leader, Educator, and Minister. Together they founded Triumph Educational Center, a program that provides family counseling services.
