CLEARWATER – The Homeless Emergency Project has promoted Terrance McAbee to president and CEO.

HEP provides food, shelter, clothing and supportive services to homeless and low-income individuals, families and veterans.

McAbee’s diverse background and lifelong experience with HEP made him a natural choice by HEP’s Board of Directors to assume the role from founder Barbara Green.

“We are pleased to announce that Terrance has accepted the offer to take over my responsibilities as HEP’s president and CEO,” Green said. “He will bring a wealth of knowledge and creativity, a deeply rooted commitment to helping us continue our mission as we strive towards to becoming the last shelter any individual, veteran or family ever has to enter.”

The transition will allow Green to focus exclusively on fundraising and development, further strengthening the organization’s ability to sustain and continue its mission.

McAbee’s resume includes more than 20 years of experience in marketing, finance, health care, and social services. He has a B.A. from the University of Florida, and upon graduation, he held various positions with Transamerica/AEGON, where he was responsible for numerous projects, some of which earned him national awards. He is a member of Leadership Pinellas’s 2008 class. He has a long history of involvement with HEP. As a nephew of Green, he began volunteering there as a teenager. He has held an array of positions at the organization, from serving in its dining hall to constructing buildings to helping maintain the grounds of the campus. He rejoined the organization as vice president of operations in 2007.

“Barb has had a tremendous impact on my life as an inspiration and guiding light,” McAbee said. “She encouraged me to hone my business skills outside HEP, which has made me a stronger leader. I have come to know many of our clients on a personal level. I have experienced their challenges and witnessed their triumphs. My vision is to continue Barb and (Otis C.) Preacher (Green’s) legacy by focusing on strategic partnerships with governmental and private agencies, as well as continuing our culture of excellence in helping to meet the needs of people in crisis.”
