Pomona Hope


Lauren Wooten

Lauren, originally from Orange County, recently moved to Claremont with her husband, Dave. She joined the board of Pomona Hope in 2019, and is honored to be connecting to the local community through the organization. 

Prior to moving to Claremont, Lauren lived in Vail, Colorado after graduating from Vanderbilt University. In Vail, Lauren’s interest in the world of education and nonprofits was sparked by a local youth-serving organization, YouthPower365. Lauren spent a year serving as an Americorps volunteer, and was hired as a full time employee by YouthPower365 at the end of her term. During her eight years with the organization, she managed afterschool and summer programming for local students, spent time in the fundraising department, and eventually became the Director of Operations. She is passionate about empowering communities through engagement with children and families, and is energized and inspired by the work that Pomona Hope is doing!
