HAND Now a Division of Meals on Wheels Central Texas

A few words from Dan Pruett, President/CEO of Meals on Wheels Central Texas

As you may already know, there have been some exciting changes at HAND over the past several months!  The biggest news is this vital non-profit is now part of the Meals on Wheels Central Texas (MOWCTX) family.  It’s a perfect fit because both agencies dedicate themselves to providing critical services to low-income, homebound older adults and people with disabilities – services designed to keep the people we serve living independently AND save taxpayers money in the process.

I’m excited to introduce the new Executive Director of HAND, Marsha Wier.  Marsha was previously MOWCTX’s V.P. of Human Resources and I have no doubt HAND will thrive under her thoughtful and compassionate leadership.

 

A few words from Marsha Wier, Executive Director of HAND

We are so excited to be able to share the workplace culture and quality customer service we have established at MOWCTX with the team at HAND.

These first few months have been about getting to know the team members and clients and understanding their needs. One way we achieved this was through satisfaction surveys. We wanted to hear from you and we are so grateful for the feedback we received. A few areas in which we have made improvements include communications, staffing, training, and benefits for our attendants.

MOWCTX’s vast array of life-sustaining services combined with HAND’s in-home personal care provides “one-stop” shopping for low-income Central Texans who need some assistance in maintaining their independence.

I’m honored to be a part of HAND and I am excited to work with the great team we have in place to help our neighbors in need.
