Agustina Temprano - Associate Director
Agustina Temprano is from Spain and came to the US in 1958 to work in a Day Care Center (Saint Joseph) in Falls Church, Virginia. After some years, she studied at Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia and Immaculata College in Pennsylvania, in order to obtain her Bachelor of Arts in Education. She worked as Director of Saint Joseph for 30 years. She then moved on to do pastoral work at Saint Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, where they had a pregnancy center, Mary's House, for women facing crisis pregnancies. The Pastor at Saint Anthony, Fr. Tuck Grinnell, appointed her as Director of the House, and she served in this role from 1996-2014, when the house was closed.
In 2015, Agustina came to HOPE because she wanted to volunteer and help families in need. In 2016, she became the Assistant Director of HOPE and has served in this role since then. Her passion is to help women in any kind of need, especially women in any crisis during their pregnancy. She wants to dedicate the rest of her life to this mission.
