JR is the Midwest Business development manager for Clemens Food Group. He loves spending time with his wife and two children and watching Pittsburgh and Penn State sports.
The reason I love Voices of Hope is exactly what is says in its name. Voices giving hope of change. The organization is about changing the awareness of rape culture, but it’s more than that even. It’s about victims changing to survivors, self muted friends and family changing to advocates. Strangers changing to supporters. My biggest hope to change my children to be better than me, to always stand up and speak up for what’s right. And always to use their voices to provide hope for everyone they meet.
My name is Tina Honkus and I am a wife, a mother and a Gigi. My daughter, Kristine, was assaulted in 2004. Trauma effects not only the victim but the community around the victim and I experienced vicarious trauma.
I am glad to be a part of this organization where I can share my own healing with others and change our culture.
