Meet Our Staff
Joe & Anne Rackley - FoundersIn 1977, Joe and Anne Rackley began a spiritual journey, which led them to answer the Lord’s call to establish the Roxie Anna Collins Children’s Home Ministry, which was later renamed to Collins Home & Family Ministries. The Home was named for Joe’s grandmother, a devout Christian and pastor’s wife, who lived all of her 93 years in Oconee County.
Today Anne & Joe are mostly retired, but continue to help where needed.
