The COA extends our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Dave Hoger.


Dave was the driving force behind the creation of our Handy Helpers program. Over several years, Dave volunteered thousands of hours building wheelchair accessible ramps for Cass County seniors in need.


He has been a generous donor and supporter of several COA programs. Not only was Dave a huge supporter of the COA, he loved the area and was an active community leader as the Silver Creek Township Supervisor, member of the Dowagiac School Board, CEO of Jessco/Ameriwood, and champion of Habitat for Humanity in the Dowagiac area.


The COA recognizes Dave Hoger for his contributions to his community and his support of the many programs and services we provide. His legacy will continue to live on through the valuable service the Handy Helpers program provides.
