MEET THE OWNER

I’d like to start by introducing myself. My name is Christine Hager and I hail from Houston, TX and am the proud owner of Welcome Home. My husband, Bradley, and I have been married for five and a half years and have two beautiful children, Brooklyn and Greyson. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications from Texas State University (Go Bobcats!). I am the Executive Vice President of the Junior League of Midland. Junior League exists to develop the potential of women, improve the community and promote volunteerism. I am also a member of Welcome Services International. Though I have many hobbies, my deepest passion is welcoming new families to my community.

I found my passion for welcoming families after moving from Houston to Grand Junction, Colorado in 2011. After being rooted in Houston for so long and not knowing anyone in Colorado, I struggled to cope with the move. Then, a God-send knocked on my door. A welcoming service, just like Welcome Home, made me feel right at home in my new community. After that initial greeting, my anxieties about the move were gone. I had a lifeline and a new friend! This experience made me realize how important it is to make people feel welcomed. A year later, my husband and I were transferred to Midland. Moving to yet another new town, it felt natural for me to start my own welcoming service. Thus, Welcome Home was born.

After my own experience, I did not want newly arrived families to feel disconnected in the community. I started Welcome Home in the Midland area in 2013 and expanded to Odessa in 2015. This service has a special place in my heart and I feel that it is a way for me to minister and serve my community. This venture has given me the opportunity to help over 6,000 families get connected to the Permian Basin with the help of my wonderful team of eight women (that we call greeters) dedicated to personally welcoming new home owners to the area. I care deeply about newcomers’ successes in the community and hope my service has made as a big an impact in their lives as it did in mine back in Colorado.

WELCOME HOME WILL HELP GET YOU SETTLED!
