Caring Christians Four Kids Board of Directors

Ken Kernen

Ken Kernen – President and Founder

I have been fortunate to be able to help those in need for many years, even before my first trip to Kenya in 2012. Much of what I hold dear came from my upbringing, including my Christian background while growing up in Franklin, WI, where I live to this day. But the basis for my compassion for children everywhere has been heavily influenced by my wife Susan of 38 years. She has a special kind of love that emanates from her and is evident in our three sons as they make their way through life. I also serve as a board member at Eastcastle Place, one of the most esteemed senior living centers in Milwaukee along with holding various church leadership roles. Along with my role at Quad Graphics in Sussex, WI., I’ve been a teacher at the University of Phoenix and love education, which is one of the reasons why we include it in some of our initiatives.

I stay active in God’s world, helping where I can and listening to Him when I must. It was His voice that led Susan and I to form our foundation. It’s a story I’ve told several hundred times at least and that’s when the passion I have to help children is most evident. When I remember why we started this in the first place.



Don Dorsan

Don has had a long history of community service, including a term as a City of Franklin Alderman and service on a variety of community organizations . Don currently serves as Treasurer of the Milwaukee Area Land Conservancy, an organization dedicated to the protection and conservation of land and water resources. Don became involved in the Caring Christians 4 Kids due to his desire to improve the quality of life of those who are less fortunate than us. “I believe that we, who have so much, have an obligation to help those less fortunate, both locally and globally.”  “If I can make a lasting change in the life of just one child by devoting time and effort to this cause I will worth every minute spent."

Susan Kernen

Secretary 

I was born and raised in a small town in Upper Michigan. I had wonderful parents who instilled Christian values and beliefs that I in turn have passed on to my family. The act of giving and never wanting to receive is one of the traits that I hold true to my heart and have lived by my entire life.  So it was natural for my husband and I as we returned from our trip to Kenya in 2014, to form a vision to help the children who live there.  The rewards that we have benefited from are far more vast than one could imagine and we keep this in mind as we do God’s work.

Moving forward, I hope to be able to do more for these children.  We have been blessed in life having three fantastic young men as our sons, so we would like to give back.  Soon we will be grandparents of identical twin girls, a true gift from God!


Heidi Pfifer

Board Member

As the youngest of 10 children and single mother to an amazing daughter; much of my love was developed from my family and faith through two very devoted parents. I enjoy spending my time with family, friends and anyone who needs a helping hand. My volunteer work started though my church along with local organizations. I have spent many hours volunteering at the Milwaukee County Zoo and more recently packing food for Feed My Starving Children. I met Ken in November 2015 at a run walk, the first of what turned out to be a year long exercise for us and we became friends. Through our many conversations about the CC4K organization I became inspired to help and was asked to join the board in June of 2016. Since then Ken and my fellow board members continue to encourage me to do more to help these amazing children, using my background of faith and love as my guide.
