Roy Larsen

Semi-retired, Roy continues to oversee the Brooklyn office. He grew up in New York and then attended college and seminary in the Midwest. He worked in the Democratic Republic of Congo for 10 years before returning to the U.S. to work alongside urban and ethnic churches. That involvement led him to get legal training and he began work with Immigrant Hope in 2010. Roy and Judy have been married for 42 years and have 4 grown children and 11 grandchildren. He still loves to go camping, raise vegetables and read mysteries. And he loves working with Immigrant Hope!
