* Howard Hunter “Terry” Williams, III was a tireless advocate for community service and, as Board Chair, provided the vision and leadership for our organization to acquire the legal rights to provide hospice care in the District, Virginia and Maryland. Williams House, named in Terry’s honor, helps stabilize hospice patients so they can return home to spend the time they have with the people and things that matter most to them.
