Jonnie Cabebe | House Coach
Jonnie Cabebe’s passion for serving Jesus and her keen desire to be the hands and feet of Christ have driven her ministry for the past 15 years. Serving in the children’s ministry, in Prescott at Mount Zion Tabernacle Church and another church has given her a love of teaching children God’s Word over the past 6 years. Because her heart overflows with the Holy Spirit she serves on the Greeting Team.
When Jonnie reflects on her life experiences and the love of Jesus for her, she is confident He has equipped her to serve at Village of Hope as the House Coach. Her journey has given her a deep compassion for the homeless, drug addicted, and those who have walked dark roads. She knows all roads have led her to serve these women with a heart of empathy and a non-judgmental spirit. Her life verse, “She is clothed with strength and dignity, she can laugh at all the days to come.” Proverbs 31:25, embodies her service of the women at the Village of Hope.

Heather Routh | Board Member
I am a second generation pediatric nurse here in Arizona and that's my passion! I practiced at Phoenix Children's Hospital after graduating from the BS Nursing Program at ASU in 1986. Shortly after that, we moved to Seattle, Washington, accepting a position at Seattle Children's Hospital, Cystic Fibrosis Department. I devoted the next 10 years to families and children impacted by Cystic Fibrosis. Working closely with the research department, I enjoyed working with families educating them in how to best care for their CF children. The last 10 years of my career were spent in a private pediatric practice educating families, and especially new moms and newborns.
Since moving back to Arizona 5 years ago I have been praying and looking for a place to volunteer and continue to use my gifts and talents. I am thrilled to be volunteering and serving on the Board of Directors for Village of Hope. Impacted by our own daughter who has struggled with drug addiction for many years I have been able to take my nursing skills/knowledge and apply that to young women who struggle with addiction. My hope and prayer is that I would be able to pour into the lives of these young moms and encourage and equip them to be the very best mom they can be.
