Linda Hodges, Director of Client Services for Casa De Esperanza, joined Casa as frontline staff 10 years ago. After training, she was offered an off-site advocate position through Cal Works in Yuba County. Collaborating with the DV Program Director at that time, she successfully developed the off-site program. She, in turn, worked in conjunction with agencies and boards to develop a strong and on-going relationship with the Health and Human Services agency.
As the Director of Client Services, she says that she has the opportunity to work with an amazing group of people. Hodges explains, “I am a survivor. I have three children, six grandchildren and one great-grandchild. My job is in my heart and if I only help one person, I will have done what I was sent here to do. Treat everyone as you want to be treated, with extra respect and love.” Known for her calm nature, she says that her ideal vacation would involve a beach and relaxing cabana- her “peaceful healing place.”
