Rebekah Smith

Director of Human Resources

Rebekah joined JusticeWorks YouthCare in April 2018 as the Human Resource Director. She oversees the Human Resource Department including HR administration, benefits as well as recruiting functions for the company. Rebekah has an extremely diverse background starting with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

After many years of working with HR responsibilities and a primary focus on people, Rebekah received a Master’s Degree in Organizational Development from Robert Morris University. Throughout her human resource career, she has worked in technology, manufacturing, and health-related companies. Rebekah believes that the role of a Human Resource Administrator is to continuously find unique ways to make a positive impact on those she works with and supports.

Rebekah was drawn to JusticeWorks through her desire to be a part of an organization that makes a difference in the lives of children and families while making every effort to have a constructive and beneficial influence on the community.
