Oleda Christian


It brings Oleda great pleasure to work with Church Hill’s community organizations in developing grassroots programs to strengthen the neighborhood. She knows that quality of life is essential for well-being, which includes adequate housing, community, and self-sufficiency. 


Oleda is from Hampton VA, and is a veteran. She served 10 years in the Air Force as a Pharmacy Technician and deployed overseas in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.


Oleda started out with Urban Hope as a volunteer and soon after became employed. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, writing poetry, gardening, and spending time with her three lovely children and her mother.
