Meet Michelle – another long time employee of Hope’s Home.
As we continue to go through our list of employees who have stuck around for 8+ years, we are in awe of the dedication these staff members have shown. Hope’s Home has completely surpassed just being their place of work. This organization – and everyone in it – is their family. It really is a unique experience working at a non-profit.
With that being said, we are here to introduce Michelle. She is such an integral part of our Hope’s Home family and we can’t wait to see where her journey with Hope’s Home takes her next.
1. How long have you been at Hope’s Home? What positions have you all held here? Give a little explanation about each one.
My name is Michelle Yung and I’ve been a nurse at Hope’s Home in Regina for 10 Years now. I started off as a nursing student and never left! I’m currently working as a Nurse Supervisor at our Supportive Living home. I’ve worked in many different roles from floor nurse to school nurse, Nurse Supervisor and Regional Manager. I love this organization and have been proud to be a part of the growth over the past 10 years.
2. How have you seen the organization change from when you started to how it is now?
Some firsts for both myself and the organization were working the first ever overnight respite that we provided to families from our daycare centre. I was also apart of helping to open our first Supportive Living home here in Regina on Durham Drive.
3. What is your favourite Hope’s Home memory or moment?
Some of my favourite memories include Hope’s angels, the kiddos that brought us so much joy that are no longer with us but have left lasting impressions. ❤️
4. How would you summarize the past 10 years working at Hope’s Home?
I love my job, the kids we care for, supporting families and our amazing team; it’s no secret that I’m a lifer with Hope’s Home.
It has been so exciting to watch us expand from one location in one city, to 3 cities across Saskatchewan, running integrated daycare programs, supportive living homes, recreation, and a much needed respite program. I can’t wait to see what the next 10 years brings!
It truly is Hope’s Home’s organizational culture that keep our staff members sticking around. We would love to hear your thoughts around culture within the workplace and the top things you think keep employees around. Let us know in the comments!
That’s why there’s no place like Hope. ❤️
