PRESIDENT/CEO
HOUSE OF HOPE, INC.
MANKATO

House of Hope, Inc. is an adult treatment facility that provides a safe environment for individuals who desire to develop a recovery program from chemical and mental health issues.  House of Hope has been assisting individuals toward life-changing recovery for more than 41 years and understands the devastating impact of the disease – not only on the afflicted individual, but on friends, family members, and other loved ones. House of Hope is committed to providing the highest quality of care to those who choose to continue to build a recovery program.  

Dean has eight years of leadership experience working within the nonprofit sector. Additionally, Dean has spent 28 years working within the field of chemical dependency with 20 years of experience providing direct care therapy to individuals that had been diagnosed with chemical dependency and mental health disorders.  Dean is a graduate of the St. Thomas Leadership Institute and currently maintains a license in the state of Minnesota as an alcohol and drug counselor.

According to Dean, “I have worked in the nonprofit field as an executive for the past eight years. I have a thorough knowledge of the challenges that nonprofits face and the significance of advocacy efforts with an ever changing funding environment. Currently, my position as the President/CEO is overseeing operations of residential and non-residential substance use and mental health disorders. I currently serve as the President-Elect of a trade association called the Minnesota Association of Recovery Resources for Chemical Health. I believe that my strategic planning experience and ongoing education of the legislative process would be of benefit to the MCN board.”
