17 Years and Counting

A Friendship Like No Other

For many, it is hard to believe working at once place for 10 or 15 years.  However, this year Doreen Amoako celebrated her 17th anniversary with Howry Residential Services.  Virtually starting her career at the same time Howry was taking on its very first clients, Doreen has been a support and encouragement throughout her tenure.  Working with the same client from the Diamond House since the beginning of her employment, Doreen has helped to provide essential background information that has assisted this client’s progress over the years.  Although this client is non-verbal, she will sign to staff inquiring as to Doreen’s whereabouts if she takes time off her regular shift.

Doreen has seen many changes in this particular client over the years.  She anticipates seeing much more in the years to come.  When questioned about retirement, Doreen usually dismisses it.  According to Doreen, “as long as she is here, I will be here.”

Congratulations Doreen!  Thank you for your many years of loving and committed service.  We appreciate all that you do and all that you are.
