14264055_1749502058624589_8672823586378186341_nIn my time at Chase Home serving on the Board, it has been my pleasure to meet some incredible staff members, each of whom display remarkable dedication to a mission that is critical to the greater Seacoast community. Our mission is essentially to save the lives of kids in desperate circumstances.

Without dedicated staff led by Executive Director Meme Wheeler, our mission would fall flat. Recently, I learned that Program Director Craig Dennis, who has worked here for years, was pursuing another opportunity. While saddened to heard this, I was also happy for him. He will indeed be sorely missed.

For those who might not be sure what Craig did at Chase Home, you are not alone. What I mean by this is what didn’t he do? Like pretty much every staff member at Chase Home, it was clear that Craig essentially did whatever he could to support our kids. Job descriptions are great on paper, but in this world such things rarely cover 25 percent of what is actually needed.

As Craig prepares to enter the next phase of his career, I wanted to take this public opportunity to thank him for all he has done and to extend my thanks to the staff at Chase Home. As Chase Home expands its organizational footprint to meet the needs of the communities it serves, I know we can rely on the staff to do what must be done.

With support from friends like Piscataqua Savings Bank, Insurcomm and most recently Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank, the future looks bright for Chase Home and those we serve.

Thankfully, we have an expert staff  and a great executive director upon which we may rely. I am joined by a great group of individuals on the Board, too.

Fond farewell, Craig, and be sure to visit us soon.
