Please join us in welcoming Kristin Hickok to Our Hope Association. Kristin joined us late last month, having accepted the newly created (and much needed) position as Resident Services Coordinator. Kristin is primarily responsible for intake and assessment of new clients in addition to coordinating services provided to all women we serve, both within Our Hope and in the greater West Michigan community.
As some may know, when our longtime friend and employee Connie Beatty retired, it left very big shoes to fill. We think we've found the perfect person to begin to do that in Kristin. She comes to us most recently from Bethany Christian Services where she had been a Refugee Foster Care Case Manager since 2010. Prior to that, Kristin worked as a Suicide Prevention Training Specialist at Gryphon Place in Kalamazoo for seven years. She received her undergraduate degree in Sociology and Social Work from Western Michigan University and is currently working toward becoming a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor.
Please send Kristin a message on Our Hope Association's Facebook page or, better yet, stop in and introduce yourself to her. She'd love to meet you!
