Our Leadership

Paul Hughes

Executive Director (since Aug 2015)

I have the amazing opportunity to continue to move this 30-year-old Christian ministry forward; as we offer safe housing, food and other resources to the homeless and at-risk youth of the Wenatchee Valley. We do this with the help of past and present ministry leaders plus the critical support of donors and volunteers. It is with your assistance that we bring the love of Jesus to the "least of these" among us.

Matthew 24:40- “And the King [Jesus] will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these, my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!

Director of Haven of Hope (since October 2014)

I find it a privilege to love the women and children who reside here. During my years here, I have witnessed the community of believers in Wenatchee surround the women and children with all of us speaking life and their true identity in Jesus Christ into them.

As a young girl in Seattle, I often saw people who appeared hopeless. I had a longing back then to help them. The Lord has fulfilled one of my deepest desires as a Christian and as Director to witness many of these women at the Haven find true hope in Jesus Christ and take steps forward into real freedom that they could have never imagined.

Romans 8:37- "But in all these things, we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us."

Being a part of the Hospitality Ministries has been a life changing experience for me and I wouldn't trade it for the world. In the five years that I have been involved in the Hospitality Ministries I have witnessed countless success stories. It is truly a privilege to be involved in an organization that's sole purpose is to help those in need. It is also very rewarding to watch people transform from a broken person to someone that is so much more than broken. I have watched men, women and teens get their spirit, strength and dignity back, and for the opportunity to be a catalyst in the process- I am forever grateful!
