Celebrating The Incredible Women of Quest & Their Life-Changing Work

In honor of Women's History and Social Work Month, our Quest Cares team share their stories of the women that have inspired their own personal contribution to community service.

My grandmother Viola G. is one of twelve siblings and was the first person in our entire family to graduate from college and became a RN. At 86 years old, she still has her license and studies often. My grandmother influenced me to get the best education that I could and use it to help others.

My mother, Hilary Browne, has inspired and influenced my contribution to society. Growing up over the years, I have watched her struggle as a single parent. Through her ups and downs, she was determined and persistent in ensuring more than our basic needs were met. Not only did I watch my mother sacrifice for my brothers and I, but she was a pillar in her community and was willing to sacrifice for others. She was the founder and CEO of Missy’s House of Hope, whose motto was “Catching Them Before They Fall.” She dedicated her life to the development of youth.

A former Medical Professional for 20 years, she has worked with youth through Ministry, youth organizations, and as a foster parent. As my mother worked diligently in her community, I also saw the different needs, not just for young people but for adults as well. Because of that, I became inspired and sought a counseling and social services career. ​- Melissa Tyson, Quest Cares Program Manager

First and foremost, my parents are my constant inspiration. Being a daughter of immigrant parents has opened my eyes in many ways. The women in my family are absolutely amazing, strong, and beautiful. Their drive and faith in GOD are something that’s unwavering. I’ve seen and witness their struggle, then turning that struggle into opportunities for success. They continue to influence me. I happily celebrate my sisters, my cousins, and my aunts for Women’s Month.

My mother Lillie Coleman is my personal hero. She has taught me the importance of hard work, as well as the importance of having a sense of empathy and care for those we come into contact with. She encourages my siblings and me to always stand strong in our purpose. She is so amazing, and I’m blessed to call her my mom.
