Denise Albano and Patti Chang
FTHF exists to eliminate poverty and hunger by using microfinance as a platform for connecting individuals and businesses, from farmers to restaurant owners involved in Hawaii’s sustainable food industry and tying in personal, familial, communal, economic, and spiritual transformation. Through Patti’s work at numerous boards on which she has served, she has worked to end discrimination based on race, class, gender, national origin and sexual identity. Her passion lies in finding solutions to the economic, social and political barriers faced by low-income individuals, particularly women and girls. Patti received her B.A. and J.D. from Stanford. She is originally from Hawaii. Denise has served on several boards in San Francisco including: the Mayor’s Office Task Force on Ending the Sexual Exploitation of Youth and Edgewood Center for Families, Youth and Children. She received her B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley and her M.A. in Psychology from New York University. A native of Hawaii, Denise is a triathlete and a USA Triathlon certified coach.
