    EMAIL Lindsey

    "I love being Development Coordinator for House of Hope- I get to spend time with our resilient residents and watch their journey towards healing after experiencing the unthinkable. While hearing their stories can be painful, it's a privilege to be a part of the solution. Watching our community come together to help these girls has been incredible, and I feel honored for the opportunity to thank people for being the best version of their generous selves."

    As Outreach Director, Lindsey bridges the gap between the clinical (internal) team members, our outreach team members and volunteers, and the community by leading the other members and volunteers so that House of Hope's residents receive the best care possible.
