Pauline Loayza, House Manager 

Pauline has worked at Agape House since 2014 and has a rich history working with children. She is thankful to be working for the organization that provided her own family with support during a difficult time.

Resident Assistants typically serve one-year terms. Each RA connects with the residents on a personal level, helping to guide them in their healing and growth. We are also blessed to have dedicated Interns who also share their time and talents to support the teen in the home.

2018 – 2019 Resident Assistants: Sarah Goldman, Caitlin Savino, Hillary Jones, Diane Frese and Brooke Nedlund
