Board Members

The Board members of St. Martin de Porres House of Hope were selected based on their areas of expertise, their education and, most importantly, because of their passion for helping homeless women suffering from addictions and their children achieve recovery, independence and self‐sufficiency.

The primary responsibility of the Board is to keep the organization on track regarding: strategic planning, policy (development, oversight and management), budgeting and fundraising.  We are proud and appreciative of our dedicated Board of Directors!
