In memory of

IN MEMORIAM

HHH HONORS THE BELOW INDIVIDUALS FOR THEIR STEADFAST FAITHFULNESS.

DORIS MASTERS

MOTHER MASTERS WAS ONE OF HHH’S FIRST DEDICATED FINANCIAL MONTHLY DONORS. THIS GOD FEARING WOMAN WAS RELENTLESS IN MAKING SURE THAT WE RECEIVED HER MONTHLY CONTRIBUTION. EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS 88 YEARS OLD, SHE FAITHFULLY DROVE TO SPEND TIME WITH US EACH MONTH. WHEN THE CAR KEYS WERE TAKEN FROM MOTHER MASTERS, SHE STRONGLY INSISTED THAT HER FAMILY MEMBERS BRING HER TO OUR FACILITY. MOTHER MASTERS WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT SHE HUGGED EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US. THIS WAS HER REGULAR ROUTINE. IN HER EYES, WE WERE HER CHILDREN AND RIGHTLY SO SHE WAS OUR MOTHER. HER TRULY NURTURING, JOYFUL SPIRIT WILL BE WITH US ALWAYS. EVEN THOUGH MOTHER MASTERS PASSED AWAY ON MAY 13, 2019, HER DAUGHTER, JUDY TAYLOR HAS TAKEN UP THE MANTLE OF HER MOTHER’S MINISTRY. OUR PLAN IS THAT IN THE NEAR FUTURE OUR NEXT WOMAN FACILITY WILL BE NAMED IN DEDICATION TO MOTHER MASTERS MEMORY.

OLEH PROCINSKY

OLEH PROCINSKY WAS OUR FIRST ANGEL INVESTOR. BUT OLEH WAS MUCH MORE THAN THAT. HE WAS LIKE A FATHER AND A MENTOR TO OUR FOUNDER.

OLEH WAS A MOVER AND SHAKER. HE OPENED DOORS AND PROVIDED ADVANCEMENT FOR OVER A DOZEN CLIENTS THAT WE SERVED. HE DIDN’T BELIEVE IN ABANDONING SOMEONE IN THEIR DARKEST MOMENTS.

OLEH HAD AN INTELLIGENT, KIND AND SOFT SPOKEN MANNER AND WAS A VERY VALUED CONFIDANT TO OUR PRESIDENT.

OLEH AND HIS WIFE, VICKI FAITHFULLY CAME OUT TO FEED THE HOMELESS EVERY WEEK FOR MANY YEARS UP UNTIL HIS PASSING IN 2021. IN OUR EARLY DEVELOPMENT, OLEH ATTENDED CAPACITY CLASSES AT ST. PETE COLLEGE WITH US. HE ALLOWED US THE ROOM TO MAKE MISTAKES AND NEVER CRITICIZED US ONE TIME IN TWELVE YEARS.

OUR PLAN IS THAT IN THE NEAR FUTURE OUR NEXT MEN FACILITY WILL BE NAMED IN DEDICATION TO OLEH PROCINSKY’S MEMORY.

IN CLOSING, OLEH PROCINSKY BELIEVED IN HHH WHEN NO ONE ELSE DID. HE SAW THE VERY BEST IN US. HE WAS FAITHFUL TO THE END. AND FOR THAT, WE WILL BE GRATEFUL FOR ALL TIME.

JEROME FITTS

MR. FITTS WAS HHH’S CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER AND VICE PRESIDENT, WHO SERVED THE ORGANIZATION FOR NINE YEARS UNTIL HIS PASSING IN 2020. HE WAS A MAN OF INTEGRITY AND HIS CHARACTER WAS ABOVE REPROACH. HE WAS VERY INTELLECTUAL BUT AT THE SAME TIME, A MAN OF VERY FEW WORDS.

JEROME WAS HIGHLY DISCIPLINED AND DEDICATED DUE TO HIS MILITARY BACKGROUND. HE WAS MOST DEFINITELY A WORKAHOLIC. IN NINE YEARS, HE NEVER HAD AN ARGUMENT WITH ANYONE. EVERYONE RESPECTED HIM TO THE UTMOST. HE WAS A KIND, GENTLE AND SOFT SPOKEN PERSON.

JEROME’S IMPACT ON THE CLIENTS’ LIVES THAT WE SERVE AND IN HOMELESS, HELPING HOMELESS WAS ENORMOUS. FOR THAT REASON, HE SET THE BAR VERY HIGH FOR ANYONE ELSE TO FOLLOW. WE HONOR JEROME FOR BEING OUR NORTH STAR IN REGARD TO EXCELLENCE.
