The Women’s Home is thrilled to welcome our newest development team member, Heather Almond!  Heather has been hired as a development assistant to work on our reNew & reDo Fashion Event.  She will start in mid-June.

Her position is made possible, thanks to a grant through Exxon Mobil’s Community Jobs Program and coordinated by Volunteer Houston.  Each summer, Exxon Mobil awards grants to local non-profits seeking to hire summer interns.  This is the third summer our Home has been awarded this grant.  Heather was carefully selected among a pool of more than 200 college applicants.

As a development assistant, Heather’s duties include anything and everything that has to do with the preparation, planning and execution of our Fashion event. Heather is a rising junior at Washington and Lee University majoring in psychology, but her roots are here in Houston. She is a graduate of Episcopal High School, graduating Magna Cum Laude.  Heathers says her love of fashion coupled with her desire to learn about non-profits make this the perfect internship for her!

We look forward to having Heather join us soon!
