Strengthening Families Washington 2016 Unsung Hero: Sabin Hogue
2016 Unsung Hero Sabin Hogue
February 13, 2016
Honoree: Sabin Hogue, Yakima
Nominator: Kim Cruzen
Sabin and her husband Dan epitomize the description of the Five Protective Factors. They have adopted three children that they had provided foster care for in their home, in addition to parenting their biological son. They are active volunteers at the school, vital leaders for the PTA, supporters within their church, and provide outreach support to other parents and neighbors.
Sabin is intrinsically in-tune with the unique strengths and needs of her children, holds high expectations, but meets each child at the their current level. She encourages each of her children to embrace their strengths and unique spirit, and take setbacks in stride, looking for opportunities for growth.
When her husband was unemployed for a few months, the family looked at the benefit of having both parents home more, and then she launched a home-business. She is resilient, caring, devoted and empathetic toward people from all walks of life and all backgrounds. Her sense of humor and grace are instantly evident.
