Dennis and Ginny Hicks joined the staff of Protected Harbor in 2017 and have never regretted their move. Prior to joining Protected Harbor both Dennis and Ginny were deeply involved in charitable occupations: she assisting a small group of elderly residents at Calusa Harbor in downtown Ft. Myers, he as a Chaplain at Pilot Truck Stop on Luckett Rd.

They regularly attended the same Life Group at McGregor Baptist Church as Perry and Beverly Duncan who introduced them to the idea of working at Protected Harbor. It took a bit of persuading, but the Hicks’ became convinced this was the right move for them after visiting the home where our first women were in residence. After spending much time in prayer, asking for God’s guidance in the matter, they received assurance from the Lord that this was what He wanted for them.

In 2018 Dennis and Ginny were integral in helping establish the second Protected Harbor home. They worked tirelessly to facilitate its successful launch after which they happily returned to the residents at the Camino Real Way home where they first began. The ladies residing there held a special place in their hearts and the feeling was mutual.
