Geri Marple began with Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children in 1989 as a housemother at Boys Ranch Town. In 1993 she accepted the position of Caseworker at Baptist Home for Girls, where she served for 20 years. In 2013 she was asked to be the Director at Hope Pregnancy Center of Southern Oklahoma.
In my years as a caseworker I saw too many young ladies leave our care and make choices resulting in unplanned pregnancies. It was always frustrating to see them struggle to provide and be good mothers. I am excited to now be able to work with young parents in difficult situations, giving them the tools they need to make wise choices so they can have Hope for their future.
Geri grew up in Loyal, Oklahoma, and along with her husband Bob are parents to 2 grown sons, a daughter-in-law, and one beautiful granddaughter.
