Bonnie Harris, Founder and Director

I was raised with an alcoholic father who beat my mom and had numerous affairs. We lived in an old house with no running water or bathroom. The Lord found me in 1983, but in 1987 my husband came home and told me he didn’t want me anymore. That hurt deeply and I turned to drugs, which led me down a road of destruction. Since August 1993, after a DUI and rehab, I have been clean from drug use and alcohol.
 
God called me to open a home for women and gave me a vision through a dream to call the home Hannah’s Haven. Hannah was a barren woman, who after crying out to God, the Lord remembered her. That was the message God wanted me to carry to hurting women; that God has not forgotten them, but He remembers them and he has a purpose for their lives.

Brandie Crowe, Lead Resident Tech and Program Assistant to the Director

There are no words to describe a mother’s pain when she has a child that’s addicted. By Divine Intervention our daughter made it to Hannah’s Haven and then the Lord called our family to move from Ohio to North Carolina. I knew He was calling me to pour out the love and compassion He had taught me to have for my own daughter into other young women who were also lost and addicted. I began working at Hannah’s Haven in July 2013.  I teach group studies each day on topics such as growing through failures, attitudes and ‘How Can I know I’m a Christian.

My husband Jeff and I were married in 1995, and we have a son and two other daughters.

Karen “Bunny” Mitchell, Part-time Resident Tech

I was born and raised in Greensboro where I have lived my entire life. God blessed me with an amazing husband of 38 years, two beautiful daughters, the best son in law ever and three precious granddaughters.
After thirty nine years, I have recently retired from a career as a Dental hygienist. Aside from caring for my granddaughters, I had no idea what my next chapter in life consisted of. Little did I know, God had a plan for me very different from my own. I have always had a passion for Hannah’s Haven and kept up with all the amazing things happening in so many lives through my husband Jeff who is a board member. But mostly, I was a behind the scenes supporter.
I was honored the day Bonnie Harris called and asked me to be a part of the team and work with the ladies on weekends. Sometimes God surprises us with His plan especially when it is totally different from our own plan. I am so blessed to have the opportunity to walk beside these ladies, minister to them, love and pray with them as they find out what God has planned next in each of their lives.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you.

Maria Pass, Part-time Resident Tech

This has been an amazing opportunity to minister to students who are working to overcome addiction and life controlling issues. I have accepted a call that the Lord placed in my heart to have the opportunity to work and make a difference in the lives of young ladies who need to experience the love of Christ. I believe that “nothing just happens”. Prior situations I had to encounter with past/current relationships were steps ordered by the Lord and have prepared me for where I am today. Joe, my husband of 22 years, has been a tremendous supporter of Hannah’s Haven. We have three children and four beautiful grandchildren.
Luke 7:47, “For this reason I say to you, her sins, which are many, have been forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little.”

Nicole McKinney, Resident Tech (Personal Studies)

The Lord called me to Hannah’s Haven in September 2018. Having come from a dysfunctional family, being the wife of teen challenge graduate and having made my own poor choices has given me a passion to see women with life-controlling issues walk in total healing and live out their God-given destiny

I am honored to get to see the love of Christ being ministered to broken and hurting women every day. I teach personal studies, meet with the ladies one on one and serve in a daily mentor capacity. I thank God every day for my job at Hannah’s Haven. I get to see lives changed every day and in the process, my life is being changed. God is a miracle working God and His powerful love is the center of everything we do here.

I also have the blessing of serving as the Associate Pastor under my husband at Thrive Church in High Point, NC
We have 5 wonderful children and are delighted to be called Nana and Poppa of 2 grandbabies.

Wittney Tucker, Resident Tech – Live In (Group Studies)

I’ve lived in Florida my whole life, but the Lord called me out of my comfort zone and into this ministry. The Lord put Teen Challenge on my heart right before I graduated from college, so I asked Him to reveal to me which location He wanted me to serve at. Not long after that, I knew that this was the place that God would use me and it was up to me to stay comfortable or walk in obedience to Him. Needless to say, I chose the second option!

When I was a baby, I was found crawling in traffic and because of that, my grandparents raised me (they both passed away). Growing up I was molested by an older cousin, so I grew up not knowing my identity and not knowing how to love myself. As I got older I learned the importance of forgiveness. I chose to forgive my cousin and I began the process of healing. Now I know my identity in Christ and I want other women to know theirs as well!

I’m so grateful that I get to serve this ministry.

Stefanie Huffstetler, Operations Manager

I joined the staff of Hannah’s Haven on May, 10 2018. I have an Associates Degree in Biblical Studies from Lee University and have served in many different ministry capacities for almost 30 years. I have always had a heart for hurting women so I feel very honored to be a part of this ministry. My desire is to lead women to Jesus so that they can find their true identity in Him and be all that He has created them to be.

I am a North Carolina native and have lived in Greensboro for 6 years. I have been married to my amazing husband Chris for 26 years and we have been in ministry together our entire married life. We have served as Youth Pastors, Minister’s of Music, Lead Pastors and we currently serve on staff at One Church Assembly of God in Greensboro. We have 3 beautiful children and 4 amazing grandchildren.

Carina Cole, Hannah’s Bridge Manager

I am a native of Greensboro, NC. Mother of two amazingly beautiful human beings. I believe that God has ordered my steps to become involved in Hannah’s Haven and Hannah’s Bridge. I know that serving is a privilege and it’s not to be taken lightly. So I am excited the journey that God has set forth in this season and expect to see him move mightily in the lives of women in Hannah’s Haven/Hannah’s Bridge, and all those that serve so selflessly.
