40 years of the community supporting Baker and our mission – Hoxie Harrison Smith Foundation

Hoxie Harrison Smith Foundation is a local private foundation that supports Baker Industries. Charlie Barber and Bill Heilig, trustees of the foundation, have been champions of the work we do for over two decades. We asked them to share their thoughts about our program.

“What impressed us on our initial visits to the Malvern and north Philadelphia sites was the caring commitment Baker gave to their program participants…coaching them through a paid job and counseling them to develop good work habits, life habits, a sense of community and self-esteem. This has been consistent for twenty years.”

Community-focused foundations like Hoxie Harrison Smith are essential to sustaining our program. We value their generous investment in us by consistently delivering on our mission and managing our financial resources with discipline and transparency. We thank Charlie, Bill and so many others who help the vulnerable adults we serve make a better life.
