It’s Wonderful to Meet You!

A Dream Come True

Madeline Puckett

I vividly remember thinking, “I want to do this for the rest of my life”.

It’s wonderful to meet you!  

I’m Madeline Puckett, Family Hope Foundation’s new Program Coordinator. I’m a Hope College alumni with a BA in communications—I had a dream of working with nonprofit organizations—and here I am today introducing myself to you, friend!

Growing up, I knew I wanted to spend my life helping others. In high school, I got involved in a nationwide fundraiser called Dance Marathon. 

This carried forward into college where I served as the Director of Community Relations for Dance Marathon. It completely changed my life—nonprofit work is where I found my home.

I completely submerged myself in the program and continued my career with Dance Marathon and Children’s Miracle Network. 

I filled my days fundraising, connecting with the community, and dancing.  I dedicated myself to making sure children at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital had what they needed to have a happy and healthy childhood. 

I vividly remember thinking, “I want to do this for the rest of my life.” 

And here I am today—ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work! 
Family Hope Foundation is giving me the opportunity to do what I love most—helping children and families.

I am beyond excited to join Family Hope Foundation’s community and work together to make this world a better place.

Growing up, I always knew I wanted a job with a purpose. What I didn’t expect was for my cup to overflow. It took 26 years to get there, but it was worth the wait. The seed was planted in my youth—watching my mom and dad with careers that made them excited. They loved what they did […]

Silence isn’t bliss

There was a time when I thought silence was bliss. But then my son stopped talking. It wasn’t sudden—a slow progression over the last year. Now, the silence in my house is deafening, and it doesn’t feel good—to say it’s unsettling is mild. We have a new diagnoses to digest and manage—selective mutism—often brought on […]
