Year End Summary

At the end of each year I’m amazed at the amount of work we’ve been able to  complete, the impact the work has had on the people involved.    The list below summarizes the work completed just this year.  What it doesn’t  express are the many stories told by those impacted by these projects.  In fact,  I can only begin to convey the gratitude expressed by those I talked with and  the impact on their lives.  The stories of how our concern changed the course of  a life.  The results go far beyond dollars spent or materials exchanged.
