Ms. Owczarzak, Ms. Horrisberger, Ms. Fayson, Ms. Ware, Ms. Vickers, Ms. Scott, Mr. Buckley, and all other staff that assisted on Sunday when a client at Vassar House was at a high speed.

Tina Ohmer LPN, for always being willing to stick around to assist with our clients. She has recently spent extra time on site working to fix glasses for youth that had broken them.

All staff for being willing to step in and help out whenever and wherever needed. This last month has brought a lot of transition and change, and I appreciate everyone pitching in, as well as the kind words that myself and Mr. Wilson have received. Your hard work and dedication has not gone unnoticed.

I would like to thank all staff new and experienced for putting in the extra hours to help the agency’e needs. We have increased our population over 40 clients in the past 2 years with a recent increase of 10 clients. This happened rather rapidly and our staff have done an amazing job covering unplanned shifts. The State of Michigan calls on WHS routinely to aid some of the most challenged youth in the state so be proud of the work we do collectively.
We are continuously looking for good staff so if you know of folks that would like to start a career in our field please give them the information on how to obtain employment.
