Lutheran Services Carolinas President Joins Officers of NCHCFA board
The NCHCFA is a nonprofit trade association representing more than 380 licensed skilled nursing homes in North Carolina. The 17-member board represents the diverse geographic regions of North Carolina and is responsible for establishing and monitoring NCHCFA policy.
Goins, who has served on the NCHCFA board for many years, is the first leader of a nonprofit to be elected as an NCHCFA officer.
"Long-term senior services is one of the most important components of a humane society." Goins said. "It is an honor to serve the elders and this profession through active involvement in NCHCFA."
As a CEO, Goins has an unusually deep understanding of senior services operations. While a student at Lenoir-Rhyne University, Goins worked part-time as a certified nursing assistant, a certification he maintains to this day by completing at least one shift per year in an LSC nursing home. After graduating with a degree in political science, Goins got his nursing home administrator's license and was employed for several years by a large for-profit operation before returning to serve Lutheran Services as a nursing home administrator. Goins has often noted that this experience was invaluable to him in later years as he moved into the nonprofit sector and sought to balance business and ministry in an organization with an annual budget of nearly $140 million.
Goins lives in Salisbury with his wife, Cheryl.
