I know it is stressful at times to manage the growing organization, but MHC truly services the forgotten edges of our society. The dignity and humanity with which you do it has value that cannot be assessed or ever truly appreciated. The individuals and families you impact, however, will never forget and will always pay forward their gratitude to others.”
