Words from Director John Whelan: "Having an active Board is the most important function for a non-profit to be sustainable and successful. From when I started Help Them HOPE, having a board was always top priority. It is, however, something that cannot be rushed, as you have to find the right people. I am happy to say this group are both highly qualified and experienced to serve on a non-profit Board, and most importantly, they are people that I trust. This special group of people will play an important part in the long-term sustainability and future development of Help Them HOPE. To them I say thanks for their commitment."
