“I started at Hope House as a volunteer and became involved with different pieces of the organization. When a part-time Residential Counselor position opened up, I applied and was hired. This position allowed me to gain valuable experience working with teen moms, and today I am the Residential Program Manager. Hope House has given me a great opportunity to advance my career while working with self-motivated young women.”
