Wanda Hill
Young Mom’s Ministry Director

I have 25+  years of experience in working with children and youth in many different capacities.  I also have diplomas in Child Psychology and Social Work.  I have 7 biological children with my husband of 28 years, Mike.  We have been foster parents for the Huron County Children’s Aid Society for the past 17 years, with more than 100 placements.  I have been involved in this ministry of the young moms for about 8 years now, and I was myself a teen mother at the age of 17.
