Voice of Hope has depended on Mr. Craig Panza for 12 years to keep the
operations running smoothly. What a blessing he is to Voice of Hope!
Chief Operating Officer
How long have you been involved with Voice of Hope?
I first started working
at Voice Of Hope in August of 2005.
What does Voice of Hope mean to you?
I think Voice of Hope has been very effective in reaching out to kids on a daily basis with Biblical, spiritual encouragement and growth opportunities coupled with academic assistance, in a community where many children are struggling on both fronts.
What is your favorite part/aspect of Voice of Hope?
I think the best part of Voice of Hope is our emphasis on the gospel and learning Biblical content. If we don’t teach the kids anything else, we want them to know about Jesus and to be able to articulate His Word.
What is your favorite memory with VOH?
I remember many of the field trips, particularly going with some of our older kids to Abilene Christian U and also going on a field trip to the local FBI headquarters.
How has Voice of Hope made a difference to you?
I have learned a tremendous amount about how nonprofit ministry works, and how to best structure a ministry for success.
Why is Voice of Hope important to the community?
Voice of Hope really helps meet a crucial need in the lives of students in West Dallas, helping to integrate both faith and academics into the day-to-day of life. Stronger community members means stronger communities.
Why is it important for VOH to incorporate the Christian curriculum in its programs?
Without the Christian curriculum, we are no different than any other after school provider out there. Voice of Hope brings a unique combination of Bible-based curricula and academic support that, I believe, no one else is currently doing in our community.
