In order to ensure success, they are recruiting new, strong leaders prepared to build an organization capable of taking HFHTC and its partner families well into the future.
HFHTC has identified that the most active supporters of our organization to be DOERS and WORLDLY IDEALISTS! People who derive their self-worth and value from doing and from helping create the change they want to see in the world. They seek out opportunities to make tangible lasting improvement – whether it’s in their homes, their work, their relationships, their civic involvement, or their favorite charitable causes. While many think of themselves as worldly and like to help people in need all over the world, they believe that change needs to start first in their own community. Their energy is INFECTIOUS! When they get excited about a project or cause, it’s hard not to get involved.
