Hope Clinic for Women announced the addition of Elaina Francisco to the position of director of development, according to Kailey Cornett, chief executive officer for the Nashville women’s healthcare clinic.

In this position, Francisco will oversee all fundraising efforts of the organization related to individuals, businesses, event sponsors, and churches.

She joins Hope Clinic from 5by5 | A Marketing Agency for Changemakers, where she served as office manager.  Prior to that, she provided client management for Full Focus and worked with several non-profits, including Global Unites and the Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership.

She has been an active volunteer with Wiley Mission in New Jersey since 2009 and with Student Working Professionals since 2016, volunteering with children, unhoused families, and traveling to the Dominican Republic to build homes in local communities.

“Hope Clinic’s reputation in the community is outstanding, thanks to the exceptional healthcare services and caring, practical family support that it provides to so many in this area,” Francisco said.  “I’m grateful to get to tell our compelling story to individuals and businesses in the Nashville area to further our efforts in serving more women and their families.”
