Meet Amy Forkin.
Amy, our amazing Family Navigator, is the vital support system to the families we serve. Amy’s warm and engaging demeanor makes her the perfect addition to our team, especially as our family navigator. Amy instantly fell in love with Bringing Hope Home, our mission, and the work we do in the community as soon as she started interning with us on a regular basis—I mean, how could she not? Her mom is a cancer survivor!
This proud West Chester University Alum has been a Bringing Hope Home full time employee since January 2011. No matter what the circumstance is on the other side of the phone, Amy makes families feel at ease, feel welcome, and most importantly, feel hope.
She is our very own utility-negotiator and saves families thousands of dollars per year, by reaching out to utility companies and advocating for cancer patients and their families. Amy rocks and we are so lucky to have her!
Meet Lauren Rubenstein.
Community Events Coordinator
Lauren joined Bringing Hope Home family in June 2010 as the first Great Guys employee! A proud blue and white Penn State alum, Lauren was involved in THON, holding leadership positions that would prepare her for non-profit work.
Her connection to Bringing Hope Home is undeniable: BHH helped her own family when her mom was battling cancer in 2008. After BHH assisted her family in paying their bills, Lauren knew she needed to get more involved. Her bubbly personality and hard-working attitude made her the perfect fit for staging events and reaching out to the community on behalf of BHH.
Since joining the Bringing Hope Home Team, she has played an integral hands-on role in pushing BHH past the one million dollar donation mark! Lauren also manages volunteers, social media, works with donors and supervises the publicity and promotion of events. Oh, and did we mention the best part? Lauren’s mom has STOMPED cancer and is now cancer free!
