Becky has been working with unhoused people for 12 years doing outreach on the streets and now working to find land for our model sustainable community village for unhoused veterans. She has her Masters in Education with a Specialization in Counseling & Guidance and longs for the day when our village is up and running.
Carley comes from a business background; she and her husband owned a landscaping company. Now she runs our mobile shower program for unhoused folks and is dedicated to doing daily outreach on the streets of SLO - we could not run this nonprofit without her. She is dedicated to getting more people off the streets of SLO.
Marcie was sole proprietor of a small business for 30+ years. For decades, she's dedicated her life to helping unhoused folks in SLO with housing (inviting many to come live in her home over the years) and now helps feed and clothe people on the streets. Miss Marcie is amazing!
Joe is a U.S. Army Veteran who spent years in the service and now works as an advocate for unhoused veterans by helping them locate housing and obtain benefits. He is dedicated to helping get Hope's Village off the ground and is helpful in everything he does ... his role is crucial to our nonprofit.
Bull is founder and CEO of Gryphon Society/Gate Help, Inc. and has run clean and sober living houses in SLO Co. for years. He will come to live at the village when we open - his heart is helping people with addictions and those living on the streets.

“As the Sheriff-Coroner of San Luis Obispo I see the need to not only help get the homeless off the street but also put in a program that helps them become self sufficient. Hope’s Village appears to accomplish both of these goals. Even though San Luis Obispo County maintains a homeless shelter it is obvious this doesn’t always accomplish our goals of getting people off the street and being self sufficient. It is not always possible to meet our goals with one program and we need different approaches to accomplish our goals. Hope’s Village will help meet those goals.”
