Richard Waits has given 33 years of service to Southwest Christian Care.  His service began when he served on the board of Southwest Christian Church, our founding congregation. Richard has now retired from his regular volunteer service and was honored at our ministry center on Sept 27, 2016 when family, friends and staff gathered to express their deep appreciaton. 

For the past 29 years he has been a weekly volunteer, serving every Tuesday, doing everything from answering the phone to handyman projects.

Richard’s first wife Jackie was cared for in the hospice and after her death, Richard continued his volunteer work.  He is now married to Joan Waits, another long-term volunteer.
