Our Board

Hope by Twelve has a small staff that manages the day-to-day operations of running a non-profit. The board steers the organization but is also made up of individuals who are some of Hope By Twelve’s most devoted volunteers. They fundraise, they do field visits and they lend their time and talents in so many incredible ways.
