EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR
Gary Henderson, Transportation Driver, was chosen as the Coalition’s 2017 Employee of the Year based on his outstanding service, dedication, and commitment to the mission of the Coalition and the homeless individuals and families we serve.
One of Gary’s jobs is to train clients and this helps build the client's confidence and their journey to achieve independence. Gary is patient and often works along-side clients to show them how to complete tasks; this kind of interaction helps build the clients’ confidence. Gary represents the Coalition well in the community and has received great comments on the quality of his work and his great attitude. He has a great sense of humor. His favorite saying around the office – which always gets a chuckle - is “I do more before 7:00 am than the average person does all day.”
