“I love the work that we do at Renewal House. There are days when I don’t really feel like I’m working. I’m giving back to my community and the people who need services. That’s why I do what I do.”
Pamela found her purpose as a college intern at a children’s emergency shelter. She knew there was so much to be done, so she applied for graduate school to better prepare for the work ahead. Now, Pamela has been in social services for more than 30 years and as the CEO at Renewal House, she’s leading the charge in offering hope and recovery for women who are affected by addiction.
