House of Hope York PA is excited to announce that we have two new board members to help serve in our mission to bring hope, healing and restoration to hurting teens and their families.
Jeremy Wagner, who is a Desktop Support Technician for Lancaster-Lebanon IU 13, has come on board to assist House of Hope with the technology component of our ministry. He has an Associate Degree in Specialized Technology from Thompson Institute and Bachelor of Science in Information Technology from Kaplan University. Jeremy first came to House of Hope to seek help for his teenage daughter and has remained an active volunteer after his daughter graduated from the program. House of Hope will greatly benefit from his leadership and expertise in technology as we continue to grow and expand our reach in the community.
Ryan Smith first came to House of Hope in search of help for his son. Inspired by what his family experienced at House of Hope, and the growth and change that his family received, Ryan and his wife became volunteers to give back to the ministry that impacted their family. Ryan and his wife have served at House of Hope in various capacities such as house parenting, facilitating parenting classes and also became spiritual parents to one of the girls who was unable to return home after finishing the HOH program. He has worked at Glen Gery Brick Corporation for the last 13 years. For the last 3 years, Ryan has served as Senior Pastor of the Freedom Center. Ryan has also served at various ministries, in various capacities, since 2001. As someone who has been freed from addiction, he is passionate about helping others find freedom from their bondage. As the new Spiritual Director for the House of Hope board, his dedication to ministry will encourage relationships between the leadership, staff members and families at House of Hope as well as aid in directing plans for the future of the organization.
House of Hope recently opened a new counseling office in Jacobus and launched an Outpatient Program that provides counseling to anyone in need. Additionally, plans are in the works to expand and open a residential home for boys. We’re excited to have new board members to help us accomplish our vision and help more people.
