A word from the board

It is a pleasure to work with a great board and staff that represents an agency that provides such wonderful service to Somerset County. I would sincerely like to thank those board members leaving us. Dr Roger Renfrew for his  two years of service (our 2023 Vice Chair) and Sharon Provost as a board member and member of the fundraising committee in 2023. A special thanks to Dana Hamilton who has served in many capacities as a board member since 2014.

I would also like to acknowledge and thank Amy Cunningham for her continued service to Somerset County and congratulate her on her new position here at HVOSC. Amy is now the HVSOC Program Director. I would like you to help us welcome Emily Reinholt as our new HVOSC Operations Manager.
