Dena Pitts’ unique ability to balance the financial and service sides of nonprofit work lends well to her role as Chief Operating Officer. Dena has worked at Home of Hope for more than 20 years, coming to the organization from a public accounting background.
“The work we do at Home of Hope is my passion because making people’s lives more complete matters. Knowing that what we do is allowing people to achieve their maximum potential – whatever that may be – is very rewarding.”
Maintaining the business side of a large non-profit can be a challenge but Pitts’ philosophy is clear. “Home of Hope is solely focused on what is best for the people we are serving. Their quality of life is the basis of every decision we make.”

Dena loves the outdoors and when not keeping up with her kids and their activities, enjoys reading, camping and fishing.
