Socially Necessary Services Client Review

In July, the Socially Necessary Services program went through a client review. We were over whelming pleased with the outcome. The majority of the clients gave all positive reviews for our employees, but several of our clients took it upon themselves to say some really wonderful things about our employees. Some of the comments that were made were about how helpful, and amazing our employees are. Some clients mentioned that without the help of our staff, that they didn’t know where their families would be. It was truly inspiring to hear these comments from our clients. We decided to recognize those that were positively recognized by their clients. Each of these people have received a Certificate of Recognition for Outstanding Client Reviews from Home Base Inc. for their dedication and hard to work.

Main Street Fair, Kingwood, WV!

Supervisors Caroline McMillan and Addie Maxwell attended the Main Street Fair in Preston County. The fair consisted of old and new businesses on Main Street with booths for games, activities, shopping and homemade foods open for the public. New to Main Street is Home Base Inc.’s new satellite office, located in the historic Brown Building, in Kingwood. Along side Home Base Inc.’s  booth, which offered free corn hole, candy and prizes for children, was the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) booth, Relay for Life, local eateries and local shops.


Addie states that being able to participate and give back to the community to support families and those that hold pride for their historic hometown was a privilege for herself and Caroline, both.

It is Caroline and Addie’s belief that taking part in these small neighborhoods is vital to the strength of service delivery, connecting with clientele, and uplifting a sense of volunteerism and community.
