Resource Center Support: Starla Froehlich

Contact: 541-205-2298

Starla is currently attending the University of Oregon and will graduate in Spring 2019 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Family and Human Services and Psychology with a minor in Nonprofit Administration. Starla started working with Hosea in March of 2018 as an intern through the FHS Program and quickly fell in love with Hosea’s mission. During the Summer of 2018 she started work at the SVDP/HYS Youth House working with high school students and then transitioned back to Hosea’s Resource Center at the start of 2019.

Working with the young adult population has been a huge passion for Starla over the past couple of years. She cannot wait to continue pursuing that passion at Hosea and to have the opportunity to speak the truth about the Gospel to so many faces at the Resource Center. She believes that this will be an important factor in helping them live healthier lives away from the streets. Starla will also be working toward better serving these youth as she pursues a Masters in Social work at Portland State University.
