House of Ruth

Bonita Ward

Bonita began working with House of Ruth in November 1998, as Case Manager at the Unity Program. Over the years working at House of Ruth has made a significant impact on her life as well as the lives of the women and the children she serves. It brings Bonita enormous joy when she receives a call from a former resident saying, “Thank you, this program saved my life.” She has a Master’s degree in Social Work from Howard University. Her BS in Interdisciplinary Studies and Sociology is from Norfolk State University. In her spare time, she likes to spend time with her husband and two children (mainly driving them around to cheer and basketball competitions), travel — her favorite destination is any island, and doing spin and boxing classes at her gym.
