One of the highlights leading up to the golfing event was having Keith Byars, Dr. Moore and Barry Wenrich a former child resident of the Children’s Home of Reading from 1976 to 1977, tour several of the CHOR facilities and interact with many of the students that are currently enrolled at CHOR. Barry shared his captivating life story with the students and current staff on how his stay at CHOR has positively impacted and completely changed his life. He is currently a social worker that resides in Columbus, Ohio and an alumni of Ohio State University. He says his stay at CHOR as a youth has fueled his life long passion and dedication to changing the life of the kids he has counseled for the past 37 years.
