My motivation for living at the Hope House: I was fortunate to have been introduced to the Port Ministries my sophomore year in college and had the opportunity to live at the ministry the following summer. I fell in love with the surrounding community and have not been able to keep away for long since. I am ecstatic to put down some roots in the Back of the Yards and embrace all that this neighborhood has to offer while doing all that I can to find ways to best utilize my knowledge and skill set to alleviate need. The tacos aren’t bad around here, either!
