Erin-Engelke Sunbeam Family ServicesErin Engelke is the Chief External Relations Officer for Sunbeam Family Services, one of the longest serving nonprofits in Oklahoma, where she manages fundraising, marketing, public relations and volunteer programs. Sunbeam Family Services has been a vital support to individuals & families in the community. In 1907, founder Lizzie Swisher saw a need for a children’s home in her community. With basket in hand, Lizzie & a group of women went door-to-door in their historic Heritage Hills and Mesta Park neighborhoods, asking their peers for financial support. That passion to provide safe housing for homeless boys & girls spread, and their efforts raised enough funds to build a children’s home.
