Speaking of Love, we want to take this HFO Family Friday to officially welcome and have you meet Kelly Babineaux-Leday, HFO Elementary Director. As a parent of HFO kids, Kelly has had been involved with HFO as a parent for a number of years, and most recently as a part time Elementary assistant. We are thrilled to officially have her on the team full time since the beginning of this year! At HFO, Kelly believes that “loving a child or people in general can change someone’s life and maybe they will show love to others and therefore making their quality of life better and the people around them.” Thanks Kelly, you make our HFO family better every day!
Who doesn’t LOVE a Day to celebrate LOVE! Here at HFO we believe in LOVE because LOVE CHANGES EVERYTHING!
That is how love changes everything! Thanks Agent of Hope Davierra for letting us know what HFO means to you!
Pack and Paddle has been an incredible supporter of HFO for many years and we are grateful for their support in helping to exposing our students to new adventures. #thankyou! @PackandPaddle
Do now, so that you can dream bigger later #lovechangeseverything
On Fridays we want you to meet some of the faces and people who are a part of the HFO Family. We hope to highlight our staff, board members, volunteers, community friends and more! If you know someone who should be introduced to the community let us know! First up, our founder and Board Chair Reggie Dupre! Always there for sage advice and wise counsel, Reggie and his wife Marie’s steadfast support of HFO has been unwavering since day one. His vision for HFO has made it what it is today. If you see him around town thank him for giving the gift of love to our community!
Throwin’ back to the early days of HFO! Tag those you know in the photo and tell us where you are in the comments! #lovechangeseverything #timeflies
HFO’s creative way to provide consistent staffing while impacting High School students is called “Agents of Hope.” Each year, high school students are hired as paid interns. Four days a week, the Agents tutor and mentor younger students, while they also participate in college and life skills preparation. We want to thank: Jaylon, Isaiah, Danielle, Haylyn, Jada, Jaylen, Catherine, A’kilah, Keyondra, Davierra, Haven, Taylor, Hannah, Christian and Kyleigh for joining us as Agents of Hope this year! We will share more about them as the year progresses.
A special shoutout today to all of our donors! Today would like to thank Mr. Bobby Dupre for his longstanding support of HFO! #lovechangeseverything
