Welcoming Our New Program Administrator
This month Eden House welcomed Sarah Stoltman as Program Administrator.

Sarah received an MPH in Maternal and Child Health from Tulane University and is passionate about community-based approaches to sexual violence prevention. While at Tulane, they focused their research on violence prevention for marginalized groups and the applications of queer and feminist theory to public health efforts. They completed an internship at Eden House in 2019 and are thrilled to be back serving this community!

Welcome to the team, Sarah!
Celebrating Galentine's Day
Eden House staff and interns gather to celebrate Galentine's Day.
On February 13th, Eden House residents, graduates, staff, and interns had a wonderful time celebrating Galentine's Day, a day for women to come together and give thanks for the female friendships in their lives. We spent the afternoon eating cupcakes and making each other laugh. Special thanks to Eden House President and co-founder, Kara Van de Carr, for bringing gifts for residents and graduates.

We love to celebrate the love we have for each other!
Thank you to an anonymous donor for donating chocolates and treats for our residents for Galentine's Day!
Save the Date!
