Why I Serve »
My relationship with HHHC has been a long one. While growing up, my grandfather lived with us and I witnessed the excellent care that HHHC provided him, first as a general home care patient and ultimately as a home hospice patient. Even at a young age, I was struck by the dignity afforded to him and the compassion shown towards him and my family during an extremely difficult time. The experience shaped us. My sister has worked at the Community Hospice House since it first opened, and I have had the honor of knowing many staff members and volunteers there over the years. Their work truly is a calling, and one that I believe highlights the best of humanity. Their devotion, skill, and commitment to service only became more apparent over time when I’ve had loved ones pass at the House. Many friends and family members have received a variety of other services from HHHC, and all have been thankful and deeply impacted by the organization. HHHC offers vital services to the community, and it does so with tremendous skill, professionalism, and compassion. I am proud and humbled to serve on the Board of such an extraordinary organization.
