Today, we mourn the loss of Mark Vallas, son of our board member and dear friend Paul Vallas. Mark volunteered in Haiti with J/P HRO in 2012, where he supported education and after school programs as well as helped repair tents in the Petionville Camp. His endless energy and enthusiasm was contagious, and the J/P HRO team felt lucky to have him as a part of the family. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.
