In 2004, Barbara joined her husband, Dave Myers, co-founder and Executive Director of Evergreen Service Providers, to restructure and oversee operation of the non-profit agency that was created to serve adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and place them in loving, supportive Host Homes. After Dave’s passing, Barbara assumed the role of Executive Director. She leads a team of smart, compassionate, and service-minded people to carry out Evergreen’s mission.
