Virginia Kilmer

Vice President/Treasurer of the board.

Virginia has an MBA in finance and nonprofit administration and over 25 years experience as a Chief Financial Officer, Chief Development Officer, and Executive Director for nonprofit organizations with budgets of $100K to $95M. Virginia started her own consulting firm in 2017 that provides strategic planning, financial management, and nonprofit tax reporting services to nonprofit organizations.

Virginia is passionate about His House for Her because of her volunteer work with Christian 12 Step Ministry. Virginia shares, “It was a revelation for me that the 12 Step program could help people not only with addictions, but with all of the emotional strongholds and dependencies everyone experiences in life. I also came to understand the importance of housing and supporting women as they transition out of a life chained to pain and suffering and learn to live healthier to become strong members of the community.” Virginia’s passion in life is helping nonprofit organizations like His House for Her with a mission to help people and save lives.

Jen Argus

Secretary of the board.

Jen has always been drawn to jobs where her work helps others. As a provider with the Agency for Persons with Disabilities for 13 years, she helped provide Behavior Analysis services to the developmentally disabled in the Central Florida area.  Her love for all things organized, planned, and scheduled led her to start an event planning business.  Fundraising became a natural part of that business, providing yet another way to help others.  When Jen crossed paths with Renee, the founder of His House For Her, she knew there was something special about their common desire to help others.  Jen assisted Renee with fundraising and social media at Christian 12 Step Ministry and has now joined in the efforts at His House for Her.  “There are so many important details that have to happen behind the scenes for any business, ministry, or event to be successful.  I’m thankful that God has brought together this team of women, each with the perfect combination of experience and gifts, to share the love of Jesus through His House for Her.”
