    Hicks RD
    Joe Sifferman,
    Resident Director

    "Working as an RD presents an amazing opportunity to help students realize their worth and value. My hope for the residents of B. L. Hicks and Male Brinsfield Row is that they will dare greatly in their daily lives through their willingness to engage the community God has placed them in. Being able to help students know they matter and have a positive impact on others is the best part about this job."

    B.L. Hicks has partnered with the Cleveland Emergency Shelter. This organization provides shelter and food to those in need in our local community. Our residents will have the opportunity to build relationships with the people they meet there, serve food, and also contribute their time to helping keep the shelter clean and maintained.
