Haley Moran

Case Manager | haley@bethlehemhouse.net
People always ask me how I ended up working at a homeless shelter. When I tell them I was 16 when I decided to do this type of work, they are shocked. God placed this desire in my heart at a very young age and I am so thankful I followed His plan for my life. I went to college at Williams Baptist and graduated with a B.A. in Theology in 2005. I began working at Bethlehem House in 2006 and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I married Scott Moran July 30, 2011. That day, I gained a beautiful step-son, Ben. Like most 8 year olds, he keeps us busy with football and baseball. Scott and I welcomed Owen into our lives July 2, 2013. He has been a wonderful blessing for our family. I love watching him grow and learn new things every day. Being a mom is my favorite job.
