Nonprofit's director retiring after 33 years
During his tenure, EFAA has expanded dramatically, according to its newsletter. Private contributions have increased from $12,000 in 1980 to an expected $2.1 million in 2013, and EFAA's shelter program has expanded from five to 53 units.
EFAA provides assistance to people who need food, shelter and other necessities but cannot attain them. It also helps people improve their self-sufficiency.
EFAA's board of directors will begin the search for Benjamin's successor early this year, the association said.
Benjamin could not be reached for comment Friday.
