Meet Stephanie, our new Community Resource Coordinator at DCFOF! She is your go to for all things volunteer or in-kind/item donations for clients. When it comes to back to school, Thanksgiving or holiday needs Stephanie will help make it happen for our families.
Stephanie is a Dentonite through and through! She was raised in Denton and graduated from Ryan High School in 2008. She then attended UNT where she received a BA in History in 2012. Stephanie has a diverse background including working as an administrative assistant and as an au pair in New Zealand. Her passion for serving the community is one of the reasons she was drawn to Friends of the Family. Stephanie was an active member in her church and participated in numerous mission trips. After graduating, Stephanie kept her heart for service by donating items to various charities every year.
When asked about what she's most looking forward to at Friends of the Family, Stephanie says, "I'm looking forward to the community connections, getting to know our volunteers and interns, as well as getting more active within the community."
Stephanie's favorite spot in Denton is the Square, and when she's not working, you can find her making pottery, photographing people and places, and enjoying time with her friends. Stephanie's favorite quote is one she wrote herself, "The World is Home."
"This is my own quote. I came up with it while I was living in New Zealand, far from Denton, and feeling detached from my normal," Stephanie said. "All of a sudden I no longer felt like I was halfway around the world; I felt at home, and ever since then, every place I have been to, I remind myself that I am on this planet and it is home."
Welcome aboard, Stephanie! DCFOF is glad to have you!
We are in the midst of our Back to School drive and looking for volunteers as well as community members to help donate school supplies. To learn more about getting involved visit dcfof.org/backtoschool or connect with Stephanie by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
