Director’s ​Corner

   

​  It is amazing to be a part of a program that thrives off of engaging our participants in our community.  Involving ourselves in many different activities throughout Kitsap County has given our participants the opportunity to grow personally and to strengthen their friendships with not only each other but with members of the general public.


Being the Program Director of Stephens House has not only allowed me to impact their lives but they have greatly enhanced mine.  I am so excited to be part of such a groundbreaking program.  I'm looking forward to the future of BISNF!!
