Making a Difference : Ms. Ana Cooper
Grace House is pleased to announce the hiring of Ana Cooper as House Director! Ana was born and raised in the St Louis metro area, but moved to San Antonio when she was 18 years old. She loves coffee, being creative and spontaneous, and being outdoors. Ana completed a double major in Bible and Bible Teaching at Columbia International University and a Master of Arts in Human Services Counseling: Trauma and Crisis Response from Liberty University. She has three years of experience doing ministry in the Middle East and North Africa: one year teaching Kindergarten at an International School in the West Bank and two years studying Arabic and teaching English in Egypt. Trauma-informed care has always been a call and passion for Ana. Lord willing, she will one day return to the Middle East or North Africa, but for this season she is thrilled to serve as the House Director at Grace House. Ana will teach classes like Biblical Trauma Healing and Celebrate Recovery. Ana will also help manage the Grace House program behind the scenes with Ms. Lee Ann Jackson Executive Director and Ms Erica Cruz House Supervisor.
