November 13, 2014, Harrisburg, Mark Hoover, CEO of Human Resources Center was honored with PAR’s 2014 Lifetime Achievement Award for dedicating his life to the fierce advocacy and support of individuals with intellectual disability and/or autism. This prestigious honor was bestowed on Mr. Hoover by PAR (Pennsylvania Advocacy and Resources for Autism and Intellectual Disability) at its 44th Annual Meeting. Mr. Hoover’s lifetime of work exemplifies the theme of this year’s conference, “From caring comes courage.”
Mark’s career started with an internship at Human Resources Center over 40 years ago. He jokingly says that his internship never ended, as he has continued to learn from the people he works with and the consumers he serves. Mark’s drive and direction navigated Human Resources Center through budget cuts, natural and man-made disasters and ever-changing political climates and regulatory obligations. Despite decades of challenges, Mark never lost sight of his mission—helping others to help themselves.
Throughout his career, Mark has received numerous awards and recognitions for his unwavering service to people with autism and intellectual disability including the Tri-County MH/MR Human Services Award; A Resolution from State Senator Charles Lemmond, Jr.; 25- and 30-Year Service Awards from Human Resources Center’s Board of Directors; and a 25-Year Service Award signed by consumers. He recently announced his retirement, planned for July 2015.
