What’s in a name

Delia Martin, Guiding Lights & Inspiration

Delia Martín Agency is named after my mother and younger brother. Both died much too young – yet both helped create a passion in me to help those who have exhausted all their options.

Growing up on a farm in Mexico, we lived off what we could raise. I remember my mom sitting at the table, watching us eat. I later learned that she was waiting to make sure her children had enough to eat before she herself would eat a small portion of the meager meal. And I remember her anguish when my baby brother died because there was no doctor, no hope…

In my work over the years with Rescue Missions, I have seen men, women and children who are out of options come through their doors. And the Mission stretched out a hand, welcomed them in the name of Jesus, and gave them help and hope.

My passion is to honor my family by serving your Mission, partnering with you to maximize your direct response income – and your impact on your city.

Shanda Bulquerin

Data Specialist and Content Web Designer

Stepping into the business of faith-based fundraising was definitely a life changing decision. A decision I’m not entirely certain was all mine.

Just 3 years back, a position at Brewer Direct seemed to fall into my hands, and I remember feeling pride, knowing I would have a small part in helping those in need, but a hint of fear because I didn’t believe in God. A God I would hear and read about day in and day out, because naturally it came with the territory.

Starting as an account coordinator at Brewer allowed me the opportunity to have hands on experience with clients and integrate my 14 years of experience working with data and reporting, but most importantly, it allowed me the opportunity to welcome God into my heart and be made new.

Leaving Brewer was no easy step by any measure, but in time it led me to work here at Delia Martin, which God knew would be a perfect fit allowing me the flexibility to really focus on Him.

I’m truly blessed to be a part of this growing company and can’t wait to see where God takes us.

Cindy Courtier


“THRILLED!” When Rod Romero told me he was opening an agency to work directly with non-profit organizations, I was delighted. When he asked me to be a part of Delia Martin Agency, I was THRILLED.

I’ve worked with some really great people over the years. Russ Reid at RRC. Randy Brewer at Brewer Direct. Bob Hemmings at the original Smith/Hemmings. In each case, my greatest thrill has been creating fundraising programs with people who genuinely care about and are directly involved with their clients.

Now, I have the opportunity to do so again.
