Executive Assistant

Our Team

Yvonne Washington-Turay MSN,FNP,APRN-BC is a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner who has been providing care to those in need for more than 30 years. She is the Founder of God's House International, Inc., which works to provide health education and health resources in Freetown, Sierra Leone and St. Thomas, USVI. Through God’s House, Yvonne also works to spread homelessness awareness in St. Thomas. In 2008 she was ordained as a Minister. 

Her most recent endeavor in Freetown, Sierra Leone is dated back to 2000 when she initially began visiting the country.  She has provided independent medical care since 2001 in Sierra Leone and is well-known for her efforts by residents in the city of Freetown, as well as in the villages of Gbendembu and Rukupr. One of her major projects in this region is the construction of the God’s House International free clinic in Freetown. The clinic was designed by Mr. Kandeh Turay, Yvonne’s husband, who is a native Sierra Leonean and a member of the Loko tribe. This couple has used their own personal financial resources and donations from family, friends and small businesses to make this dream come alive.  

Yvonne has made a 360 degree connection in her life. After deeply researching her ancestry several years ago, she discovered the roots of her ancestry and the direct link of how her family was brought to the Americas

through the Geechee roots of her mother and great grandmother. God’s House International is truly a tribute to the roots from which it has come.

Yvonne is also the writer of the Nurse’s Theme Song, Nurse Practitioner’s Anthem, and many other original, poems, hymns, and musical compositions.​ Donate to God's House by purchasing her music here:  https://yvonnewashington-turay.bandcamp.com


Yvonne is a wife, a mother of five and grandmother of seven.
