“I believe God calls us to use our resources to reach those in need. I am constantly amazed at the dedication of so many people who work tirelessly to help others. I am truly blessed to have had the opportunity to work with many of these amazing volunteers and supporters, and so thankful for my wonderfully supportive family, friends, and board of directors. Each day, my job makes me aware of the very special needs of the homebound and elderly residents of our community and how the citizens of San Angelo so generously and graciously give their time, resources, and talents to help those in need. This spirit makes me very proud to be a member of our community.” -Charlyn Ocker, President & CEO
