“I serve on the board because I believe that every child is entitled to be in a safe environment where he/she can receive treatment tailored to meet his/her individual needs. Also, I am continually impressed by management and staff in their continuing efforts to help children meet their goals during their stay at Hoffman Homes.”

Mr. Michael Kowalik

“It takes a truly unique program to meet the varying needs of such a special group of children. It is a true honor to serve such a wonderful organization as a  member of the Board of Directors, and I’m thankful for the opportunity to assist in providing hope, healing, and a brighter future for all the children we are privileged to serve.”

Mr. Rob Stone

“I serve on the Board of Directors because Hoffman Homes provides psychiatric care for troubled children. Its dedicated staff helps each child develop and pursue a structured plan of care to meet their life’s goals. I often wonder what would happen to these children if Hoffman Homes did not exist, and I feel good when I do my part.”

Mr. Miles Smid

“With more than 34 years’ experience working with at-risk kids, I was eager to put my expertise to work to benefit the children and staff of Hoffman Homes for Youth. I understand firsthand the value of their worthwhile work and the challenges they face, and I’m proud to support their mission of caring and service.”

Ms. Jill Marie

“I am pleased and honored to serve on the Hoffman Homes Board because I believe every child inherently deserves the right to grow and develop toward their full potential as a successful and productive adult. Hoffman Homes offers a broad spectrum of therapeutic services to provide opportunities for young persons who have experienced unthinkable trauma and abuse, to help give them the same chance for success as other children. I am constantly amazed at the compassion, dedication and expertise of the Hoffman staff in providing consistently loving care in very complex situations.”

Rev. John Fureman
