She is passionate about working to ensure everyone has the home, help and hope they need to survive and thrive. When she isn’t working, Kris enjoys spending time with her husband and family, spoiling the children of her friends, reading, and planning her next adventure (which could be anything from skydiving to an Alaskan expedition!)

Yvette Hernandez, Case Manager
Yvette graduated from Ottawa University with a bachelor’s degree in Human Services. She also graduated from Walden University with a master’s degree in Forensic Psychology. Yvette started working for Hebron House as a Shelter Advocate and then in 2012 she became a case manager. One of her main goals is to provide support and resources to help clients remain stably housed. As a community case manager, her responsibility is to empower the homeless population by developing tools needed to reduce the effects of ableism and to enhance personal empowerment. Those with physical or mental disabilities are affected because they aren’t able to fully participate in their communities and in general due to being a marginalized group. Yvette helps to empower this population by finding ways to get clients to participate within their community by giving them a voice and at times being their voice. Yvette is family oriented, loves to ride her motorcycle, read books, travel, and engage in outdoor activities.
