HTP understands that we are supported by our communities, so it is our responsibility to give time, energy, and finances back to the people and organizations that make up the backbones of our communities. Everyone on our team is encouraged to get involved with a cause or foundation that’s important to them, and many of us are associated with several. As Winston Churchill said: “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
