“This is consumer driven for me.  I’d like to think I am successful when I help an individual get through a medical crisis and when I help a person medically defy the odds.”

“I am “captured” by Havar.  I appreciate the important work we do. I have a high regard for the frontline staff and those who do personal assistance.  I want to fight for compensation and recognition for those folks.  Any day, it could be me needing those services.”

“It feels like family.  Working at Havar has made my personal life better;  I’m more accepting of people in many different circumstances.”

“Thank you so much for your gift of 258 pounds of Food that Havar donated to the Athens County Food Pantry.  This was an exceptionally large and welcome gift.  It brightened the day of our Pantry Volunteers.  With it they were able to feed five needy folks in our area healthy meals.”
