meet some of our Operations team members

  • Yoshi jones, director of operations

    Yoshi is responsible for the daily care and supervision of program residents. She partners with the therapeutic, educational, and life skills staff to meet organizational goals and individual participant goals. 

    In her own words...

    I am a native of California and a resident of Brunswick for 3 years. I have worked in this industry for 21 years. Being an ex-group home kid, my desire was to give back and to change one life at a time, Lord willing. I was sold for drugs at 6 weeks old and the rest of my life was a downhill spiral from there. I relate to the population that we serve on a personal level as well as experiential level. I am a mother of 6, grandmother of 7, but have mothered a multitude over the years.

    I love what I do, this is not considered work for me - it is definitely ministry. I thank God for allowing me to come to serve at House of Hope with Darcelle Burandt. She is my BBB (Best Boss In The Business)! We share the same heart and I'm so looking forward to the journey that God has us on together.
