Elmhurst Walk-In Ministry Hires Jackie Crnkovich as Executive Director


Jackie Crnkovich came on as a part-time Executive Director in January. The Walk-In Ministry has been growing since its inception seventeen years ago, and the work of fundraising and community outreach became too large for the volunteers in charge of the organization. Having an executive director will allow the organization to continue on its growth trajectory, while adding new angles to the services offered.

Jackie comes from a background in teaching, writing, and community service. She has served as mentor in the Daybreak Transitional Housing program, coordinated the efforts of an Elmhurst consortium of churches that rehabbed a home with DuPage Habitat for Humanity, and is past-president and current board member of the Friends of the Elmhurst Public Library. She has also served on the Immaculate Conception Grade School Board and Parish Council.
