Ms. Kay Peoples
Kay moved back to Dallas from South Carolina, where she worked in adult education and rehabilitation. In 2007, Kay began working at Voice of Hope. She worked as a coach and substitute for 8 years.
Her passion for education is what drives her still today. She has the goal to become a certified Special Education teacher and then to continue teaching in the public-school system, as well as, Voice of Hope. Kay served as a coach in the Pre-K and Kinder classes. She loved when she was greeted every day with her little scholars running up to her calling her name. The memory still brings a big smile to her face. She was also a coach for our Summer Camps and enjoyed having the opportunity to spend the whole day with the children.
Ms. Peoples sees how important it is for the children here to have the strong role models and access to the educational support at Voice of Hope. She is still moved by how quickly the scholars grow and progress. Kay deeply cares for the children and loves to see them mature spiritually. She describes Voice of Hope as that much-needed light in these children’s lives where they receive loving attention and hear God’s word. Having grown up here in West Dallas, she knows how critical this is for so many of the children here who do not have access to these services otherwise.
Kay’s sister and brother live here in West Dallas and the oldest of her three sons now lives in Arlington. West Dallas is her home and she loves Voice of Hope. As she is taking a couple years off from teaching, preparing for knee surgery, she is enjoying the community services at Voice of Hope. The Thursday Bible Study group has become an extended family and she loves the fellowship and the food they share each week. She describes this as a time for the ladies to network, socialize, learn and to give each other advice and share resources.
Kay also comes Monday’s and Friday’s to help with the fruits and vegetables distribution to those in need in the neighborhood. One of her favorite activities though, is the Fall Festival when we have a big group from the community come and play Bingo!
Kay loves Voice of Hope and we love Kay!!
