Mrs. Faith the lady running behind the scenes is the one who got Children of Hope Childcare up and running in May of 2012. Since then, she has been able to expand to two sites; the Infant and Toddler facility and the Preschool facility which also houses the B.A.S.I.C. program. She runs the day to day functions of both locations. Ms. Faith also loves working with children, she teaches Sunday school at Latter Rain Ministries for the youth. She is very active at Latter Rain Ministries when she is not working with Children of Hope. When she does have free time she loves spending it with her husband and family.
