A vision for 2014

By Marisa Geitner, president & C.E.O. of Heritage Christian Services

This month I have the pleasure of introducing you to our new chairman of the board, Richard Vander Horst. Rich, who is a vice president with Wegmans Food Markets, has served on our board since January 2007 and we are so thankful for his time and expertise. His involvement with the organization dates back many years, an introduction made by his grandfather - a very faithful, dedicated supporter of Heritage Christian up until his passing.

Richard Vander Horst
I’ve always enjoyed my time serving on the Heritage Christian board because of the great work that this agency does, and I think we have a lot to look forward to in 2014.

People and their well being have always been at the center of the agency’s mission statement, and we can’t go wrong by keeping our focus there.
