Angie Engleman, a long-time “house mother” to the women we serve at Ruth Van Cleve Anderson’s WARM House recently retired. While we couldn’t throw her the party she deserved due to COVID regulations, WARM’s Board of Directors Chair, Brian Edwards, together with Executive Director, Debra Freeman-Belle, and Program Director, Beverly Robinson gave her a bouquet and shared words and memories with her on her last day. Angie moved into Ruth’s WARM House as part of the re-opening plan in 2015.
While Angie was at Ruth’s WARM House, her duties were varied and included things such as processing donations, making house meal plans, transporting residents to appointments, preparing rooms for residency, coaching residents to improve cooking, home-keeping, and childcare skills. She always had an ear to listen, and a shoulder to cry on for our house residents.
