Susan Stacy from Helping Our Helpers surprised Haley Feuerbacher Kroboth, the winner of the 2015 “Helper of the Year” Award, with a check for $500 and flowers during her class at SMU!

10/16/2015

Congratulations to Haley Feuerbacher Kroboth our winner of the 2015 “Helper of the Year” Award!

Today we are honoring a remarkable young lady for her passion, hard work, diligence and compassion for others. Haley is a MTS and PH.D – Candidate. She is aTeaching Assistant at SMU in for Women and Gender Studies and Ways of Knowing courses. She is also a Youth Pastor for middle and high school students from varying ethnic, socio-economic, and religious backgrounds. She is a Ph.D. Student in Religious Studies (specialization in Religion and Culture) and a Graduate Certificate Student in Women and Gender Studies. She specializes in the intersections between economics, gender, religion, and metanarratives as a family, especially as it impacts single mothers in their communities, the relationship between cultural images and narratives and gendered-based violence and the creativity of resistance to oppression and solidarity in marginalized communities.

The individual that nominated Haley (who is her sister and best friend) had this to say about her: Haley has an unbelievable gift to identify, analyze, and connect all aspects of life from micro and macro levels to see and use where there are points of strength as well as areas of need. She carefully crafts links between an individual’s holistic being of bio-psycho-social-emotional-mental-financial-spiritual entities to their connection to macro systems, finding both resources to utilize as well as challenges to be questioned and changed.

In describing her own work, Haley explains, “It excites me and inspires me to work with someone at an individual level, but I prefer to challenge macro systemic issues because I believe what we experience individually always has systemic implications, if not systemic causes. If we can’t get at those roots, we can’t get to the point where we are able to truly help the individual. Furthermore, I feel the focus on individual experience often takes on a shame-based or shame-producing approach, so I choose to view and tackle challenges with teaching an awareness that what we experience individually isn’t necessarily our fault, but at the same time we do have the power to change the systems and change our world.”

In Haley’s words, “I feel like it is an act of justice when my students or my youth are courageous enough to speak with me about these things.” For example, Haley was teaching an undergraduate course at SMU last fall and a student athlete voluntarily met with her every week after class to discuss ways he could make a difference to stand against violence and injustice on campus and in his community. He has now gone on to pursue a Master’s in Counseling degree and solely credits Haley’s inspiration on this decision and his career path. Likewise, just last week, a female student athlete stayed after class and shared with Haley her own experience of sexual assault victimization on campus. She said for the first time because of Haley’s class and modeling of becoming empowered by a strength greater than her own, this student is now empowered her to share her experiences with others and pursue help for both her and others who have experienced, or will experience, the same thing. This young lady said that Haley was her role model and she wanted to follow in her footsteps and be “just like her in her personal and professional life.”

as a youth pastor, she has acted as teacher, case manager, role model, coach, counselor, cheerleader, chauffer, and never-ending advocate as she has literally spent countless hours across years supporting these young people and their families in many aspects of their lives. Success stories are countless, but include Haley being asked by multiple youth to be the one person to stand by them as they were baptized; being beside a young adult as he came out to his parents; never discounting or abandoning a student as she transformed from a person who questioned spirituality to, with Haley’s support years later, stood in front of a faith community as a budding pastor.

Haley is not only making a tremendous impact on the lives of those she touches, but she is creating a ripple effect of change and growth as they pass along her passion and compassion into their worlds. Haley’s efforts are not limited to our local area. She travels overseas to KwaZulu Natal, SouthAfrica for the purpose of researching, assisting, and advocating for support of the Rural Women’s Movement, an organization created with a mission
Finally, just like Helping Our Helpers Organization, Haley recognizes that even “professional helpers” need assistance, education, and help. She offers invaluable extra-curricular knowledge to the counseling field by offering trainings for therapists in knowing how to work with clients struggling with their religious beliefs through breaking away from shame-based and constraining ideas and behaviors while still honoring their belief system.

Her whole life, Haley has been the person that never stopped going… she ran then, and she runs now. Running is the outlet that gives Haley renewed energy, thoughtful time on her own, and creative personal competition. There are times that she takes a ten minute break in the day to run from the church building to the apartments down the street to promote that evening’s youth group event to the neighborhood children. Her most memorable runs are down the beaten trails in South Africa alongside zebras and giraffes. When she slows down, Haley loves to journal and spend time with her husband, nine-year-old son, and her family.rs.

In short, Haley is the epitome of the term “change agent.” She touches individual lives and changes the world and is our “Helper of the Year”!
