Celebrating Team Members: Suzy H.

Emmaus Homes - Saturday, September 08, 2018

"I never knew of a place like Emmaus in my home country," explains Asuncion "Suzy" Hellebusch, a member of the Direct Care staff at Emmaus Homes. "I think this community is cared for differently in the Philippines," Suzy immigrated to California from Quezon City, a suburb of Manila, in 1985 where she later met and married the late Steven Hellebusch. Suzy started working at Emmaus Homes when she moved to Marthasville, MO with her husband Steven in 1991. "Steven's mother (Mary Rose Hellebusch) used to work at Emmaus and encouraged me to apply," recalls Suzy, who was a nurses' aid in a maternity hospital in the Philippines. "I was hired two days after my interview," Suzy has worked with the women at our "Bethany" house at Emmaus ever since. Read more
