Ms. Page, Program Directorwas born and raised down South in Savannah, Georgia where she’s lived her whole life until coming to New York City in the fall of 2023, when God led her to come serve here in The Bronx at Expect Hope. She first became involved in pro-life ministry back in 2015 where she was a live-in staff member at a Maternity Home/Program back in Savannah. It was there that The Lord birthed this passion in her to serve women and children in crisis situations, and to come alongside them to help build a better tomorrow and brighter future with the hope that we have in Jesus. She has worked and volunteered in similar ministries ever since. Ms. Page also has a special place in her heart for childcare, as she was a preschool teacher before coming to NYC, which helps her in the home ministering to the children here as they grow and learn which is always a highlight of her shifts with the moms & babies. She is a live-in Resident Director at Expect Hope and is so excited for another opportunity to live daily life with the residents and their children and get to experience this journey with them. 

“So she called the name of The LORD who spoke to her, ‘You are the God who sees me,’ for she said, ‘Truly here I have seen Him who looks after me with compassion and understanding, even in the wilderness“.    -Genesis 16:13

Ms. Vilma, Resident Director, is a born and raised New Yorker who with her late husband decided to relocate to New Jersey two years after the birth of their son. While searching for a home church, she became a born again Christian and came across Cornerstone Church in Carlstadt, New Jersey where she is a member of twenty years and currently sits on the Board in addition of being their treasurer. She is heavily involved in several of the church’s ministries. One she particularly enjoys is the Nursery. Having these tender beings for two hours and to pray over them is such a joy and privilege for her. She has traveled to Nicaragua with her church to help missionaries cleanup, paint and make livable a facility where volunteers can come and stay while doing humanitarian work. She also enjoys Children’s Church where she can reach the little ones and hope that their grasp of the sermon propels them into the arms of the Almighty. Her church’s mission statement is dear to her heart – to know Him and make Him known. She has worked secularly for over 25 years and was recently led to actively seek a ministry where she could be more hands on and have  one-on-one relationships to order to mentor and share what God has done for her and her family throughout the years. She still resides in New Jersey with her adult son.

“I am able to get to know these women and share my experience, knowledge and testimony of what God has done for me. Mentoring these women and sharing in the lives of their children while they are in our care fills me with a sense of purpose, knowing that I am making a difference in a very tangible way. I have come to know Christ late in life and want them to know that it is never too late to start a relationship with our God. No matter where life has taken you, you can always find your way into the presence of our everlasting Father. This opportunity has given me a blessing that I can end well no matter how it all began. Beauty for ashes".

'But Jesus called them to him, saying “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.”                    -Luke 18:16

Ms. Allison, Resident Director, gave her life to Christ in 2020 before moving to New York City later that year. Ever since then, she has felt the Lord calling her to be a friend to the friendless and a voice for the voiceless, especially by walking in fellowship with women facing unplanned pregnancy. Her daily prayer is Habakkuk 3:2, to see the Lord’s fame and deeds made known in our time and in New York City. She is currently finishing a degree in Theatre, New Media, and Dance at Marymount Manhattan College, where she also feels passionate about ministering to others through the arts and movement. Allison is so ecstatic and blessed to be a part of Expect Hope’s mission, and is in awe of what the Lord has planned for this time in her life. 

"Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord. Repeat them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy.” -Habakkuk 3:2
