Aaron Reddin is the sole paid employee of The One, Inc. and he is paid the minimum amount the state of Arkansas will allow. That means almost every penny of your donations go directly to helping our homeless neighbors survive and get back on their feet.
Our board represents a cross-section of our community and has a passion for our organization and those we serve. It's a working board with a mission to help the organization succeed.
Aaron Reddin, Founder & Board President
Aaron Reddin – President/Founder
Aaron has been described as a “crazy, guerrilla homeless advocate.” He’s been helping and fighting for our homeless neighbors for over 13 years. He’s a proud Arkansan and lives to locate and love his unsheltered neighbors.
Lindsay Carter, Board Treasurer
Lindsay is in no way qualified to be a board member. However, she cannot deny a certain fire burning inside of her. A fire that prevents her from being complacent, from being disengaged, from being unplugged. She chooses to serve others so that her heart may be served. It’s a selfish motivation, really. To advocate for another human being is to advocate for oneself. She knows we are all on this earth together and we all deserve love, compassion and encouragement. The One, Inc. provides a remarkable platform for those who choose to advocate for Arkansas’ homeless. She is grateful for the opportunity to hitch her wagon to such an amazing, grassroots organization. Her passions include reading, running, family and community. Lindsay is a Financial Advisor by day, providing retirement and investment solutions to her clients. By night, she carries a torch for The One, Inc.
Anthony K. Valley, Board Secretary
Anthony is loved unconditionally by Jesus and serves him outright imperfectly flawed everyday. He is a reformed legalist transformed by God’s grace and undeserved love. Because of Jesus’ one-way love, Anthony understands his own brokenness and his calling to be a loving servant to other people. The One, Inc. is a priceless illustration of how loving people works — no rules, no apologies, just help.
Anthony is a member of Fellowship North where he serves on the Missions team, the High School Student Ministries, the Worship/Creative Arts team, and the Elder Board. Although he spent most of his professional career as an IT database professional/software developer, he is currently using his IT skill set as an Enterprise Marketing professional at Windstream. He is the husband to one amazing wife and father to four wonderful daughters.
A number of years ago, Paul became a fan of Aaron and his mission to unconditionally reach out those who need help. Paul believes that true change in the world requires all of us humbly helping each other one-on-one by doing, not just talking about it. He is a strong believer in the command that we should love… and help… our neighbors as ourselves, and that everyone is our neighbor. Paul has been given much in life and feels obligated to give back to those who haven’t. He is the Communications Director at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Arkansas.
