Hannah Chambers
What excites you about the mission?

I am excited to be a part of a caring and compassionate team that prioritizes the safety and empowerment of Domestic Violence survivors. Every survivor deserves opportunities to better their lives, and I am grateful to be a part of that process.

How does your background impact your work at Bethany House?

Domestic Violence is all too common. Most women I know have experienced abuse in some shape or form. My past experience in trauma and trauma recovery allows me to connect with survivors on a deeper level with an understanding that healing looks different for everybody.

What is a 2024 goal you are most excited to work on?

I am most excited to expand my education with a Master’s of Social Work in hopes that I can be more of a resource for survivors, helping these strong individuals find their own self- empowerment.

What is the biggest challenge those we serve are facing in 2024?

The biggest challenge those we serve are facing in 2024 would probably be the state of our economy. Unfortunately, rising prices in rent and groceries are creating more barriers for those who want to be self-sufficient.
