Melissa Hopkins

Storytelling. It’s how we relate to each other. The opportunity to be the storyteller for the children of Boys & Girls Homes is what brought me here to serve as the director of public relations and marketing five years ago.  In my role, I’ve had the opportunity time and time again to share the stories of transformation for the children as they’ve experienced it and for the adults who’ve had their lives transformed by the organization since its founding. I am grateful for the small part I play in the transformations that help make futures brighter for children, families and the community.
