On May 22, Via dedicated our new service for young adults with disabilities – the Kristi Hanawalt Life Skills Center in Allentown.
The Center is named for Kristi Hanawalt, a long-time recipient of Via's services. We were honored to be joined by Kristi's parents, Bob and Gloria, and her brothers, Rob and Scott, as well as many friends.
Kristi's brothers spoke fondly of their older sister. Rob shared that he would often pick up Kristi from her job at Wegman's bagel department and would arrive early to watch her work, admiring her commitment to her job.
"I know that her doing her best was because of her coaches at Via and all the support that was provided to her," Rob said.
