Our Employee Spotlight is on Linda Fulps! Linda joined our team on June 1 as our Office Coordinator. She is first, smiling face that staff, volunteers and visitors see when they enter the building. Her heart for the kids is apparent in everything she does and we’re so glad to have her on our team.

Share your favorite kid moment
There are quite a few, but one girl’s stands out, in particular. She was completely shut down when she came to the Shelter. She never made eye contact, she wore her hair covering her face and rarely said a word. She was so scared and had been through some terrible things no child should ever experience. Watching her transform into a bright, happy and talkative young woman, one who is hopeful and excited about her future, was the best.
How are the Shelter’s programs impacting kids every day?
The staff and volunteers demonstrate the unconditional love that these kids desperately need. During their stay with us, they learn it’s a safe place to allow themselves to have fun, and to have new experiences with people who really care about them.
