DePree Hopkins: DePree comes to Habitat For Humanity of Greater Pittsburgh from right next door to the Habitat office, where her school is located. As a senior this year at Propel Braddock Hills High School, DePree became interested in the internship with Habitat as a way to help people while expanding her interests and knowledge of herself. DePree works in the Habitat office, checking voicemails, answering the phone and referring people to the correct staff contact. She says, "I saw the internship as another way to serve people. It was an opportunity I simply couldn't pass up." DePree is a hard worker and a delight to have in our office. Welcome, DePree!
