Under Tamme’s leadership, our volunteer base has grown tremendously. We look forward to many years of growth with Tamme at our helm,” said Patty Godnick, president of the Board of Directors.
“I have greatly enjoyed my time at the Haynes House; it is a very rewarding experience. This is health care at its best,” Taran replied.
