HOST Program Coordinator
Libby Stephens brings over twenty years of non-profit experience to her role leading the program development and ongoing management of the HOST Program. Libby grew up in West Virginia, graduated from Marshall University with a B.A. in History, and received a Masters of Divinity from the Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond, VA. Outside of work time, Libby enjoys cooking and camping (even better is cooking while camping) with her husband and son. She is also a very persistent, but inept, gardener and an avid reader.
Libby is excited to work with the HOST Program because it is a solution to housing instability that is about building connections and relationships between people. Before a student moves into a host home, the student and host will sit down together to get to know each other and talk about expectations and boundaries. Whether a student stays a week, a month, or a semester, sharing a home and intermingling their lives can be a life-changing experience for both hosts and students.
