Aaron Brown came to Home of Hope in 2014 with over 20 years of experience working in the field of Developmental Disabilities. Aaron is the director of the Community Residential Program. He has held various management positions in the field, but began with direct care as a job coach for a provider in Tulsa.
“My greatest teachers both professionally and in life have been the folks I’ve worked with through the years. They have taught me so much about life and the things that really matter.”
Aaron has also worked for OKDHS-DDS as a case manager and supervisor. There he was accepted into the state’s Certified Public Manager program where he participated in developing state policies. Prior to joining Home of Hope, Aaron worked as the Assistant Director for Tulsa Advocates for the Rights of Citizens with Developmental Disabilities where he assisted in overseeing two large state contracted volunteer programs.
“Working for Home of Hope has been like coming home for me. I was raised around this area and had some prior experiences with Home of Hope playing in my dad’s band that would often play special events for the residents. I enjoy what we do here and I know we make an incredible difference with the wonderful staff we have who provide great services to the folks we serve.”
A graduate of Northeastern State University with a BA in Mass Communications, Aaron’s hobbies include: playing guitar, hunting and fishing, gardening and vacationing in the mountains with family.
