A big Thank You to everyone who donated and helped make Christmas 2018 special for all of the youth, teens and young adults in our programs. We hope everyone is having a great 2019!
Sammye Ruppeck retired on December 31, 2018 after 30 years with CVHG. We miss her but know she is enjoying some peace and quiet. Here is a little bit about our new Executive Director Tina Medrano:
Hello all, I wanted to share a bit about myself. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from UT- San Antonio. I worked for many years with Adult Probation and earlier this year with Child Protective Services. With that new role, I became involved with the foster care system. I worked with clients and families to develop plans to improve their lives and enjoyed seeing the positive results when clients’ needs were met.
I’m excited about my new role with Concho Valley Home for Girls/ Children’s Emergency Shelter/ Transition Center and look forward to meeting and working with each and every one of you. I’m thankful for this opportunity and look forward to the years ahead.
Here is a little bit about our new Children’s Shelter Manager Brittney Jones:
Hello, I wanted to share a little about myself. I graduated from Angelo State University with a Bachelor of Science degree. After graduation, I started working at the Children’s Shelter as a houseparent and fell in love with the program and the kids. I was a houseparent for 3 years when I was offered the Shelter Manager position and I could not be happier. I have a lot of ideas that I would like to see happen to make our shelter an even better program and look forward to meeting and working with everyone for many years to come.
