Charli Caraway, Ed.D.
Executive Director

Charli left her position in university administration to establish Restoring Joy. She is a published researcher and professional educator. She brings experience from corporate America, small business practices, and academia. Charli has her own testimony of broken family and abuse that is used to lead and guide in her position as Executive Director. She is known for successfully stretching others to do what they never thought they could through encouragement, passion and a special kind of discipline she calls the "velvet hammer".

Jeff Plotts
Director of Business

After many years of working in retail and social services, Jeff brought his special gifts to Restoring Joy in 2012. Known as "Uncle Jeff" to the Restoring Joy family, this man has used the gifts of customer service, wisdom, and his personal testimony to make the business end of ministry triumphant. There's no new skill Jeff isn't willing to learn for the sake of the ladies and the kids. It's common for him to leave his accounting work on his desk, to repair furniture, move appliances, and participate in a four-year-old's birthday party!
