Kristin Dreesen

Program Coordinator

Kristin has been cheering on hundreds of young moms for over 14 years and is still in awe of how teen moms are some of the most resilient and generous young women she’s ever met! Kristin has been married to her best friend for over 30 years, and they have two adult children. She enjoys supporting the Love Does Home which is an encouraging and helpful place for young moms to continue their education. She oversees the Love Does Home Program in the greater San Diego area which includes food assistance, resource & life skills classes and an opportunity for encouraging community.

Melissa Weber

House Manager

Melissa has worked as an adult critical care nurse for the last six years. She has volunteered in after-school programs and from 2021-2022 moved to Ethiopia to work in a children’s home. She is a voracious reader and avid hiker. When she can’t find a mountain she will whole hearted run for several miles instead.
As a long time advocate of showing love through actions, she encourages women to meet not only their goals, but also their dreams. She enjoys teaching life skills and creating a safe, and open community for single moms in San Diego.

Thank you endlessly for your generosity!

You’re changing lives all over the world with your love.
