Who We Are

The Community Education Department at Hope’s Door New Beginning Center consists of two talented Community Educators dedicated to promoting healthy relationships, raising awareness about abuse and preventing its manifestation and perpetuation in our community.

Ryan Thomas is the Community Education Program Manager at Hope’s Door New Beginning Center and is responsible for crafting effective curricula to raise awareness in the community and eradicate domestic abuse through educational presentations focused on prevention.  He enjoys working in the community, networking with people of various organizations, professions and coalitions, as well as working with the faculty and students in local schools.  

Prior to his work in the field of domestic abuse prevention, Ryan was a teacher both abroad in Japan and in Texas for 15 years, working mostly with teens and young adults.  As a Community Education Facilitator, he leverages his teaching experience to engage the public in conversations about domestic and dating abuse through speeches, presentations, workshops and booths.  Ryan received his Bachelor’s Degree in Anthropology from Texas A&M University in College Station, is a certified teacher in Texas, and is ever grateful for the opportunity to positively impact the lives of people in his community.
