Hopeworks Welcomes Tina and Melinda to our Life Readiness Team

This month, Hopeworks has welcomed two new Life Readiness Coaches! We are lucky to have both Tina and Melinda join us. 

Celestina Anino is from Tampa, FL but moved to Camden after completing her B.S. in Psychology and Criminal Justice at The Florida State University. She then pursued an M.A. in Criminal Justice at Rutgers Camden University. Tina has fallen in love with the city after having been here for the past 4 years.  

Melinda Renuart grew up in Akron, Ohio. She came to New Jersey to attend Princeton University where she studied English and ran cross country and track. Much of her studied was focused on how personal testimonies affect their audiences.

We are happy to have Tina and Melinda contribute their talent and skills to help us continue to support more youth in and around the City of Camden!
