Lisa Cameron joined the staff in January 2020 as the Executive Director of Bridge of Hope Chester County. We are incredibly grateful to God for the skills, expertise and calling that has prompted her to say yes to this invitation to serve in this role.
From 2010-2019, Lisa served as Director of Empowerment Services at the YWCA Lancaster and has worked as a mental health therapist from 2004 to the present. Her work with the YWCA continues in the role of consultant with the YWCA USA with a pilot program that focuses on trauma and girls/women of color.
Lisa has a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Theatre from Eastern Mennonite University and a Master’s degree in community counseling from Western Michigan University. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a certified trauma practitioner.
Lisa says, “I believe in Bridge of Hope because it is a tangible way to answer the call to be kind neighbors to others in our communities. And, I believe in Bridge of Hope because it requires the work of the church, holding us accountable in putting our words into action, and serving some of the most marginalized and vulnerable in our communities.”
Lisa’s family includes husband Eddie and son James and they made the move to Chester County, PA from Lancaster City in early 2019. Eddie serves on the pastoral team at Hopewell United Methodist Church, located in Downingtown, PA, and which has had numerous Bridge of Hope Neighboring groups over the past decade.
