It is often said that you don’t know what you have until it’s gone. But what happens when you receive something you have been missing?

What if a health ailment improves — or a relationship is renewed? Even more, what happens when you help to facilitate that change for someone else?

The foundation and for-profit business are guided by the dynamic vision of CEO Bill Austin, an outside-of-the-box thinker who emphasizes teamwork. His strategies propelled both the company and the foundation to become industry leaders.
