Humanitarian Service Project welcomes a new intern for the fall! Sharon Befus a 2009 graduate of Wheaton College is the newest addition to our intern team.Sharon spent 8 years of her childhood living in Venezuela and one year living in Costa Rica before landing in Elgin, IL where she spent the majority of her childhood.

When asked about her favorite part of interning at HSP. Sharon said that she enjoys seeing the positive reactions from clients when they receive assistance from HSP. She has also appreciated the opportunity to use her Spanish speaking skills when communicating with HSP clients.When asked about her favorite quote Sharon immediately came up with a beautiful quote by Emily Dickenson. "If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain".

Sharon has already made a tremendous impact at HSP and we feel very fortunate to have her as part of our team!


  1. Wow! She will be a tremendous asset to your team! And what a great quote! It takes someone with a BIG heart to do BIG things!

  2. Sharon has a heart of gold and perseverance that is rarely matched! I had to pleasure of being her supervisor and quickly came to rely on her often since she is such a great asset to any team! I am excited for her new opportunities with your organization.
