Erica Stephen

Executive Director

Erica Stephen grew up in Crown Point, Indiana and has a degree in Christian Business Management from Liberty University. Throughout her life and career path, God has used Erica to steward her gifts for the care of others. Erica wants to offer relief and support to caregivers and elderly neighbors in Tippecanoe County.
She understands the need for every person to use their God-given gifts for God’s work to flourish. There is no way we can do this alone. Erica’s aspiration is to be the hands and feet of Christ and to bring joy and love to the lives of others.

“As you walk into someone’s home and hear their stories and learn from them, it really is the person serving who receives the gift. The appreciation and joy of just a moment of being present with another person can mean so much, even though it is simple,” Erica shares.
Erica desires to use her experiences, management skills, and training to serve God and people as Executive Director for Caregiver Companion. She would love to meet you! She can best be reached at the office when you call (765) 423-1879 or by e-mail at director@caregivercompanion.org.

Hannah Currie

Associate Director

Hannah Currie is from San Antonio, Texas, and graduated from Trinity University with a degree in Political Science and minors in Education and Religion. Having grown up in a Christian household with her grandmother, joining a Christian organization focused on serving the elderly in our community was a “no brainer” according to Hannah.

“I have to credit both God and my grandmother for where I am in life,” she says. “I would not have the heart for the elderly or the walk with Jesus that I have today if it weren’t for Mamaw.”

Hannah is here in Lafayette while her Fiancé, Jasper, pursues his PHD in Political Science at Purdue University. She knows that the Lord guided her steps to Caregiver Companion, and hopes simply that she can show His love through her work here.

“I’m so excited to be here at Caregiver Companion. Working with the elderly is something I have loved since childhood, and to know that this ministry is blessing the seniors of Lafayette, well, I just know that I couldn’t be in a better place.”
