Pat Bedford,
Assistant Director 

Pat came to the Hope Center in 2016, when the doors opened. She was excited about the prospect of being at the very beginning of something new and exciting that would help the community.

Now, after a career change and working for the Bergen Town Court, as a Court Clerk, she is back. She has a diverse background and experience which includes working at the U of R in the HIV Vaccine Unit, where she was a Data Manager.  She has two roles at the Hope Center: one is as the Program Director of our Ladies’ Group. She comes to us with a creative mind and is looking forward to sharing creative crafts with the ladies and forming friendships.  She also plays a supportive role as the Assistant Director of the Hope Center and is very excited about both opportunities.

When not at work, Pat keeps busy spending time gardening, going for walks around the village with her two Cocker Spaniels, CeeCee and Zoey, making greeting cards, reading, Bible studies, and playing with modeling clay as well as dabbling in various other hobbies.  She and her husband enjoy going out to eat with friends and chatting with their children, who are spread out all over the country. They have 10 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild.
