Program Director

My family moved to Lincoln City, Oregon in 2000 and I graduated from Taft High School in 2008. I have a passion for helping people and believe that loving people where they are is the key for their hope of a better tomorrow. Without people having the ability to believe in themselves, failure is all they will ever know. As a community, we are responsible for helping our neighbors restore their hope and dignity. 

Lincoln & Tillamook Counties have a higher percentage of depressed people in the whole state, and Oregon as a state, has the highest percentage of depressed people in the whole nation.  In Oregon, Suicide is the second leading cause of death. Hard to believe in a land so beautiful that so many people have lost their hope.

Solving homelessness is not something that happens overnight but rather in steps. The first step is getting our homeless people off the streets and out of hypothermia-risk temperatures. Restoring hope and dignity is what helps people get back into society and maintain a better life. As we like to say, "Helping others in need is a beautiful thing."

Shelter Manager

Sharon has played a huge role for the success of the warming shelter. As a pioneer to this program the first year that Lincoln City Warming Shelter was open, she was there every single day the shelter was open doing intake and soon became known as apart of the "dynamic duo" team. 

The following Warming Shelter season, she became the Volunteer Coordinator and Shelter Manager. By the end of the season, she had the most recorded hours being there every day the shelter was open and won the superhero award for Most Valuable Volunteer.

When visiting the shelter, you normally find her running around to make sure that everything is in place and that everyone has what they need. to understand as if you were talking to your customer
