Charles Tuttle   “Charlie”, National VP of Business Development for TTR, Inc. located in McMinnville , OR.  Since becoming involved in Prison Reform beginning in 2011 in Atlanta Georgia, I relocated 8 to McMinnville in July 2012.  My passion is to improve the opportunities for all people being released back to society to improve their chance for sustained success.  Today’s prison system is in need of major support when releasing individuals who are no-where near ready to re-enter society. Programs that have been prepared on the inside at release time are full of holes that in no-way prepares the person to come home and become some type of productive citizen again.  These lost men and women if given the correct chance will become productive law abiding, tax paying individuals who care about family and friends as we all do.  Remnant Initiatives understands this course and today has begun a long journey to get there with solid footings in how to provide safe and effective re-entry at its highest level.  Charlie holds a MBA in Leadership and hosts a series of Bible studies in the McMinnville area. He is the Father of Triplet daughters and Grandfather of Twin daughters.

Kim Perry   Kim Perry grew up, lived, and loved in Yamhill County. Kim lived in McMinnville when Remnant Initiatives began, and even though her life has now taken her to Alaska, her heart remains in Oregon, and she continues to serve remotely in her role as Remnant Initiatives Board Member. Kim’s professional life includes a career of twenty years as a non-profit donation fundraiser and executive of a large non-profit organization. In 2018, upon arrival in Alaska, she went back to college to pursue a nursing degree, and she is enjoying that immensely! Kim has two amazing teenage children, a supportive husband, and a German Shepard dog named Zak. Her favorite part of working with Remnant Initiatives is having direct contact with incarcerated people. Direct contact has allowed her to transmit her love of life to her Yamhill County neighbors in transition directly. She has been known to print off random colorful photos of flowers, lakes, and Zak, and send these directly into prisons to add color to the environment. These photos, which have so far consisted of a picture of an onion ring, a goldfish, and Zak being a good boy on an Alaskan hiking trail, are always well received!

Lish Mannetter   Lish Mannetter is passionate knitter and musician, who serves a weekly bible study and worship service inside Coffee Creek Correctional Facility (the state prison for women in Oregon). Lish’s witness of the revolving door of incarceration, and the tremendous odds against successful transition, make her a passionate advocate for exploring a new and better way for our brothers and sisters in prison. Lish brings over 25 years experience as a premium auditor for a large insurance carrier, and has been serving as a DOC religious volunteer for four years.  “The King will reply, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25: 35–40) Notice that the passage does not say, “For I was hungry and you gave a check to the local food bank, I was thirsty and you gave money to a relief fund, I was a stranger and you supported a homeless shelter, I needed clothes and you made a quick drop-off at Goodwill, I was sick and you donated to a Christian medical outreach, I was in prison and you supported Prison Fellowship.” There is nothing wrong with doing any or all of the above, but I would suggest we all need to mix in a little more personal contact. There is a time to give money to charity and a time to give of yourself. You won’t get the same kind of blessings or personal growth out of sending a check from the safety of your home that you would from rolling up your sleeves and actually touching someone. Yeah, I’m too busy too. Yeah, it makes me uncomfortable.” -When Bad Christians Happen to Good People;  Dave Burchett

Marianne Voight   A simple degree in Criminal Justice was one thing... but four years as a state social worker with Child Protective Services, riding around with State Police, rescuing children and trying to reunite them with parents living difficult lives... showed enough trauma and heartbreak for a lifetime.  So Marianne Voight spent the next few decades in the business world, earning a MBA and specializing in sales and marketing of telecommunications products and services.  She adopted two traumatized children from Russian orphanages and soon after co-founded a support/educational group of 150 "Adoptive Moms of Challenging Children". She hosted their monthly meetings for ten years in the Washington, DC area. In helping her own children and mentoring these families she was brought back into the areas of criminal justice, mental health, learning disabilities, institutions, treatment and multi-generational trauma.  Recently, at Bend, Oregon's 100-bed homeless shelter, Marianne managed the front desk twice a week and was Lead Volunteer Trainer. She grew to know the personal stories of the homeless men, women, teens, and children who were working to pull their lives together. A good number had incarceration in their family histories. In Bend she received 40 hours of training from the National Alliance on Mental Illness.  She sometimes thinks of Earl, a big, bald 50-year old man in Bend, whose many scars and tattoos told the story of a person who had lived a "rough life", including addiction and imprisonment. He had charm, wit, and gumption. She wants Earl and others like him to find lives of peace and success.  Just before Christmas 2017 Marianne moved to Newberg to be near her husband's 18 extraordinarily nice relatives in the area. She has plunged into front desk work at the local food bank, marketing for a youth group home, and assisting the local addiction/housing ministry. She is Head Chef at Newberg's Community Dinner two Mondays per month. In 2018 Marianne started a charity making 50 mini-bouquets per month for Meals on Wheels and nursing home recipients. For more fun she swims religiously, helps her small church, and makes crazy pottery pieces every Tuesday morning at the Cultural Center.
